Country Living Expo & Cattlemen’s Winterschool

Washington  residents (and others willing to travel) ... this is one of those well kept secrets. We tried to go for a few years and finally, last year, we finally were able to attend. I just got this notice and thought I would pass it along. It's looking like some particularly interesting classes are being offered this year. Notice the price for the youth as well - bring the older kids and let them learn while they're young! 

If you are from an area outside that doesn't offer anything like this, maybe it's time to send this email on to your county AG dept, extension office, Farm Bureau or public official....
