Public Meeting in Marshall with Legislators - Float Trip
21 May 2013
22 May 2013
Marshall High School Gym
Representative David Branscum decided to put together a two-day program to educate people on the Buffalo National River, farming and culture in the Heart of the Ozarks, and the hog farm at Mt. Judea. The meeting will be headquartered in
Marshall on Tuesday, May 21, and Wednesday, May 22.
The state representative said he has invited members of the state House and Senate committees and has received confirmation that representatives of
Cargill, Gov. Mike Beebe, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, U.S. Sen. John Boozman and others will attend.
He said Buffalo National River superintendent Kevin Cheri has been invited to address the group at 1 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, in the Marshall High School gym. After his remarks, Branscum said state Rep. Kelley Linck is lining up canoes for
a float trip from Tyler Bend to Gilbert.
The group will be treated to a fish fry at Gilbert sponsored by the Farm Bureau.
At 9 Wednesday morning
, Branscum hopes to have L.C. Ratchford talk about his buffalo farm and another farmer talk about his operation.
The group then will board buses to tour the hog farm and meet its owners.
That will be followed by a meal at the Ozark Cafe in Jasper sponsored by Cargill Meats.
He said the educational trip will end when the group returns to Marshall.
