South Carolina Cattlemen

South Carolina Cattlemen’s Association will be having their annual meeting is coming up. Roy Copelan, Executive Director of the SC Cattlemen’s Association:

“This will be our 27th annual meeting planned by the state cattlemen’s association scheduled for Saturday March the 3rd, here in Columbia, in the Phillip’s Market Center on the Columbia State Farmers’ Market.

This year’s event offers a full day of activities, including a trade show, according to Copelan:

“A full day of activities, to tell you the truth; twenty-three exhibitors representing veterinarian supplies, equipment, seeds, fertilization, animal assistance will be coming in.”

The morning session will feature three simultaneous programs:

“Program begins at 8:00 am, we have concurrent workshops going on starting at 9:00 am; BQA training session led by Dr. Patty Scharko, Clemson veterinarian, our Cattlemen’s Foundation will meet simultaneously, led by Mr. Brandon Hurley, the president, and then the third thing that hour will be a reorganization of our South Carolina women’s organization. At the lunch banquet will be Mr. Colin Woodall, our ‘boots on the street’ man with NCBA giving us a legislative update.
There will also be educational sessions in the afternoon, as well as scholarship presentations, and an awards presentation.

Copelan says it’s not too late to get involved:

“We’d love to have additional registrations, we always invite our out-of-state friends, particularly those that border South Carolina, from neighboring states of North Carolina and Georgia, to come and take part in the day’s activities. Forty dollars is our registration, you can do it online in advance at sccattle. org website, or at the door. The forty dollars includes materials, the breakfast meal, and the noon luncheon.”
