Marketing and Stockmanship School Coming to
Springfield, Missouri February 12-14, 2018

We decided to always put on a school before the Bud Summit. That way, new interested people can attend our school and then be eligible to attend the Summit or previous attendees can brush up on their skills by attending another school.

Eunice Williams will be joining us for this school!

Meeting Location—

The Lamplighter North, 2820 N. Glenstone Ave., Springfield, MO. Be advised, there is another Lamplighter in the middle of town, that is not where the school will be held.

Hours—

Marketing School: February 12, 8 am to 5 pm and February 13, 8 am to 12 noon

Stockmanship School: February 13, 1 pm to 5 pm and February 14, 8 am to 5 pm

Sleeping Rooms—

Call the Lamplighter at 417-869-3900 and say you are with “Hand ‘n Hand.”

2017 Bud Summit—

Attendance at this school qualifies you to attend the 2018 Bud Summit on the evening of February 15 and all day on February 16 also at the Lamplighter Hotel in Springfield, MO. This event is a gathering of “Budders” who are using the marketing and stockmanship to further their livestock enterprises. The format is loose and will include discussion by the attendees, questions and answers, video narrated by Bud Williams, and networking with producers from all around the continent. For more information about the 2018 Bud Summit or how to attend, contact Eunice Williams at 417-719-4910 or eunice@stockmanship.com.
