If you haven't heard funding for Ag Programs across the state was approved by the Governor in late June. Thanks to everyone that called and sent in letters to our local representatives!
Congratulations to Danny Moretti for being a National Proficiency Finalist in Poultry Production. Danny is in the top 3 at this point for the award. Good luck Danny back at Nationals in late October. You can watch how Danny does on RFDTV during October 29 - November 1.
Well our members all did great at the 3 fairs we attend. Rio Pagliaro won the Supreme Champion Market Hog at the Marin County Fair. She also did well at the Sonoma County Fair having a Champion and Reserve Champion Market Lamb. Rio also competed in the Master Showmanship Contest as well. We won't know if she won for a few days. She won every class in the Breeding Sheep Southdown Show also. Katie Arndt took a Reserve Champion with one of her goats and Mike Edwards also had a Reserve Champion Lamb. Manny Brazil did well also at the Sonoma County Fair winning a Supreme Champion and a Champion with his dairy cattle. Lane Norman took a Reserve Champion with his Angus Market Steer. All 3 fairs went well and even though our numbers were down, Tomales took home lots of ribbons.
