Participation in 2016 D.C. Legislative Trip
February 5, 2016

Members of the American Sheep Industry Association's Legislative Action Council, along with member-state sheep association leaders, will be in Washington, D.C., March 14-17.

The purpose of the visit is to bring the message of the sheep industry to the nation's capital and coordinate updates on wool, lamb, trade, sheep disease and protection programs with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Visits with federal policy makers regarding legislation and meetings with agriculture and land management agencies about programs that impact the business of sheep producers in this country are being planned.

Producers interested in participating in this event should contact their state association or Peter Orwick at porwick@sheepusa.org by Feb. 22.
