National Heirloom Expo

I'll be attending the National Heirloom Expo at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, California on Wednesday, September 14. The expo runs from the 13th through the 15th. I'm sorry I can't be there all three days, but I'm happy I was able to arrange my schedule to be there at least one day.

Kim will be bringing his Dorkings to the Heirloom Breeds Show. He hasn't shown them before but he's one of the few people in California keeping them. So having any Dorkings there at all will be a treat, and an education for all who see them.

The poultry event will be judged by American Poultry Assoc. judge Walt Leonard. The prize for Best of Show will be $500; for Reserve Champion $200!

There's also an heirloom livestock show, sponsored by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. I'm eager to see the other farm animals on display.

Events like this are a wonderful opportunity to meet other breeders and learn what's working for them. See you there!

I hope you write about the Expo. I wanted to go and am very disappointed that I couldn't make it.
