California Sheep and Agriculture Tour

September 30 - October 7

Join other sheep producers and agricultural enthusiasts on a week-long sheep, agricultural and site seeing tour in the Golden State. This tour will focus on the all facets of the sheep industry including but not limited to commercial sheep production, small farm flocks, purebred operations, club lamb operations, etc. Some specific tour stops will include Superior Farms packing facility in Dixon, CA; Emigh Lamb http://www.emighlamb.com in Dixon, CA; Indart Sheep Operation in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, Fresno, CA; Both Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks in the Central Sierra Nevada Mountain Range; and A winery tour as well as many culturally enlightening food stops offering choices from the local food scene.

The cost of the tour is $2300 per person based on two per room occupancy not including airfare to and from San Francisco. It will include transportation (upon arrival in CA), lodging (2 per room occupancy), and some meals (5 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 4 dinners).

We are hoping this tour will attract sheep producers from Ohio, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and others. Flights will
originate from Columbus, OH for mid-western participants and from Spokane, WA, Boise, ID,and/or Portland, OR for the Northwestern participants.

If you are interested a $500 deposit is due on May 26th, 2017.

This program has been a success in the upper mid-west with both US and International
educational tours. This offering to northwestern sheep producers and agricultural enthusiasts is
a first. These trips engage participants in learning, camaraderie, and in regional as well as
cultural enlightenment.
