    January 14, 2012 @ Noon. Benton, Arkansas.

    This meetup will have special guest Dr. R. Keith Bramwell speaking on Incubation! Please RSVP so we know how many to expect. We encourage you to come early and buy the "All You Can Eat" Buffet lunch at Brown's Country Restaurant http://brownscountryrestaurant.com No purchase is necessary to attend this Meetup.

    There will also be a swap meet afterwards next door at the gas station. It may be best if bringing something for the swap, you park under the gas station canopy. Space under cover is limited. First come, first serve.

    Dr. Bramwell is the show superintendent for the Arkansas State Fair. He is active in research for the commercial poultry industry, backyard poultry and exhibition poultry. He judges many county fairs.
    This seminar will be about Incubation and will include a powerpoint presentation plus a ‘hands on’ project!

    The swap is fun, but everyone will not want to miss the seminar! He may also show us how to AI. I need to ask him if he will. I will also need to bring a pair of birds he can AI.
