The DLGC Annual Meeting will be held at the Double Tree Inn**, West Fargo, ND, in the early evening after the conclusion of the North Dakota Lamb & Wool Producers Association and Minnesota Lamb & Wool Producers joint annual conference. The MN and ND organizations have planned a North Dakota Sheep Industry Tour for Friday, December 1 (begins at 10 AM), and a full day of educational sessions, including a trade show, for Saturday, December 2. The Dakota Lamb Growers Cooperative meeting will follow the joint convention activities around 5:00pm (meeting at the Double Tree Inn).
DLGC members will vote on the amended and restated Uniform Marketing Agreement (ballot included with Notice of Meeting mailing). New members are especially encouraged to take advantage of the networking opportunities and educational sessions offered this weekend.

The North Dakota Sheep Industry Tour on Friday is limited to 55 people, so register early! This tour costs an additional $20 (lunch included). You will return by 4:30 pm Friday. A Lamb Dinner Social followed by a fundraiser auction is scheduled for 5 pm Friday evening.
