Message from Jason regarding the Banquet's speaker, Bill Albers as his topic, Korn Brothers,
Ohio's Oldest Airport, 1911 This comes from an
article in CAMERICA, 1953, entitled OHIO'S OLDEST AIRPORT, by Bernard J. Losh. By the little farming community of Montra, near Jackson Center, O., is
what is claimed to be the oldest airport in Ohio. Look for an interesting topic presented by an equally interesting speaker.

December 2021 Meeting Recap: The
Cattlemen had a very productive meeting on the 14th. We discussed
the upcoming banquet that is planned for March 1, 2022 and we
also discussed 2022 plans such as updating our media presence. There has been
an idea floating around for a while to join forces with the Shelby County Dairy
Producers. The Dairy Producers attended the last meeting and we officially
decided to begin that process. The upcoming calendar year 2022 will be a trial
run for the combined group. Our first joint event will be the banquet. Upcoming meetings will discuss future combined events.
the new joint organization we are also updating our media presence. Shari Wolf
has graciously agreed to update our website and help us get a Facebook page
started. In order to start these projects, we need to provide her content. The
next time you are working cattle or simply doing daily chores, please take a
few pictures or videos and send them our way. Or if you want to share an old
photo, that's great too! This will be a great way to show the public what we do
as cattlemen and to do what we do best, Promote Beef and Dairy!! Shari
has been working with Siegel’s Country Store regarding their website needs and
will be great for us. If you want to send pictures or videos her way, her email
next meeting will be January 18th to further discuss the
banquet and 2022 events. I look forward to seeing you there!
