An informational meeting was held on August 25 at the Fort Scott Livestock building, to share one farmer’s side of a federal new executive order.
Bourbon County residents Anne Dare, Sparky Schroeder and Deb Martin heard Lyon’s County Resident Angel Cushing speak about a new federal program at a meeting in Pleasanton last month and thought people in Bourbon County and the surrounding areas would be interested in learning more, Deb Martin said in an email.
“I posted a really good article on it on our Ft. Scott Livestock Facebook Page,” she said. “Go there and read page 20-21 of that Calf News Magazine and also the Protect the Harvest and Trent Loos Facebook pages.”

“Sparky said he counted cars, 125 people attended the program,” Martin said.
