Check out the Waterfowl page if you plan to raise waterfowl. Information you need to know about ordering and dates will be listed there. Also, Sallie Goppert is resigning as the exhibition waterfowl leader. She has accepted a new job position that does not allow her the time she feels on necessary for her leadership roll. Sallie did place the order for the club this year, you will still need to pick them up at her house. A new leader will be taking her place soon.
