    Please post what birds and/or equipment you are bringing to the swap after the seminar!


    This meetup will have special guest Dr. R. Keith Bramwell speaking on Poultry Breeding and Genetics in the small flock! 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 old 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
    Poultry Breeding and Genetics in the small flock and will include a powerpoint presentation plus a hands on project!

    Michael Schlumbohm, UofA student from Ohio (and BYC member) will do a small part of the discussion as well.

    · The various areas of the poultry industry as they relate to reproduction and hatchery management.

    i think it would be cool if everyone attending brought something to give as a door prize if thats the right word.
    anything from an old waterer to 10 egg cartons to a random chick or anything poultry related. everyone's got something spare layin around

    say 50 people show up. each person puts their item on a table and someone marks it with a number. all who participates, will draw a number from a hat at the end of the seminar and go take whatever is their number.
    this'd prolly be too much work or hassle, but it may end up cool.
    give a lil somethin, get a lil somethin.

    If you want to head it up, go ahead. I have requested a gift card from our Atwoods. Waiting to hear back. We need someone to check with Farmer's Feed. I'll call Brown's back and see if they will offer a free meal as a door prize.
