The featured speaker will be Don Van Nostran, a former ag educator and general manager of Mid-States Wool Growers who now has his own business marketing lamb carcasses wholesale to the Kroger company.
His presentation will emphasize marketing as the way to improve total income from a sheep operation.
The day will include a lamb luncheon and an evening reception, concluding with the PA Sheep & Wool Growers’ annual meeting.
