Breaking New Ground

The 2016 Annual Spring Conference, held in Coopersville, Michigan provided attendees with two days of events and programs.  Friday’s barn tour was filled beyond capacity.  With a cooperative weather the day was spent touring a number of barns in the local area.  Friday was completed with dinner at the Coopersville museum.

Saturday proved to be an enjoyable social gathering with speakers, auctions and lunch.
