The Bonner-Boundary Cattle Association (BBCA) is pleased to announce the 2017 AG Seminar-Beef School on Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Sandpoint Elks, which is located just north of Sandpoint on Highway 200 E in Ponderay.  This year’s topics include: Cow Size & Environment vs Feed Efficiency & Profitability; Using the New Breed EPD Profitability Indexes; Cattle Mineral Supplementation; and Easy To Use Computer-Based Cow Record Programs.  You can download the  program brochure here.

The event is jointly sponsored by the Bonner-Boundary Cattle Association, and University of Idaho Extension, with the financial help of numerous local businesses (please see the list of these businesses in the brochure).  You must pre-register so that we can make adequate preparations. There is a $15 registration fee.  Refreshments and lunch are included.  Please call Jack Filipowski at 263-7264 or email jack@fernridgeranch.com   by January 30th to pre-register.

Attendance is open to BBCA members and to the interested public.  We do encourage those of you who are involved in the cattle business and who are not currently BBCA members to consider joining us.  We can all benefit by your support and participation. Membership dues is used to provide 4-H and FFA support at the Bonner and Boundary County Fairs. Dues ($20) are assessed on a calendar year basis, payable at the beginning of each year. We also co-sponsor with the Cattle Women a $1000 college scholarship to a student with agricultural interests, provide assistance to members in need, and support other Ag based community activities.

The Bonner-Boundary Cattle Association is an independent non-political producer organization chartered as a nonprofit corporation in the State of Idaho.  The BBCA carries out education programs providing its members with information designed to promote effective cattle and land management and timely knowledge of local, state, and national public policy issues affecting the industry.  We conduct a public relations program to promote and increase public awareness of the beef industry by contributing to and participating in local community events. The association works for the common interest of its members and promotes a spirit of public responsibility within the cattle industry.
