ASI Makes Nominations to NSIIC Board
March 11, 2005
March 11, 2005 -- The American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) executive board nominated two individuals to fill two director seats on the board of the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center (NSIIC).
Jeff Siddoway (Idaho) was nominated for re-appointment to an active-producer seat on the board. Siddoway runs a large commercial sheep operation on private and public land in eastern Idaho. He has been progressive in implementing rangeland and wildlife techniques that improve his efficiencies and are environmentally friendly.
Guy Flora (Ohio) will be put forward as the nominee for the open active-producer position. Flora runs a "typical Midwestern farm" on which he raises commercial ewes as well as corn, wheat and soybeans. Flora is editor of and a partner in The Shepherd Magazine, one of the leading sheep-specific publications in the United States.
"ASI recognizes the necessity of dedicated, well-informed and diligent directors to implement the missions and goals of the Center. We acknowledge the progress made by past directors and endorse these nominations to carry forward the important programs and funding opportunities developed in recent years," commented ASI President Paul Frischknecht.
ASI is the sponsoring organization that created the Sheep Center in 1996 and the original "Certified National Sheep Organization" to nominate directors to the board.
