June 2015 ParaBoss News

From the Editor

Don't forget to check and save your existing ParaBoss News subscription by the end of July to be in the draw for great prizes. See details below.

Polls are the latest addition to the Boss sites. We are starting by seeking your opinion on the Bosses, but later polls will canvass current practices and opinions about sheep parasite control. See this month's questions below.

After more than 50 years in the sheep industry, I am now retiring. It's been a while since this newsletter was started back in October 2006. Working with our generous and highly knowledgeable contributors has been a pleasure and an education. I would commend them to any sheep producer and can assure you that invariably, if you follow their professional advice, the return will be much higher than the fees.

I can also assure you that ParaBoss will continue to grow and refine and be a more relevant information resource.

So, as Elmer Fudd would say at the end of the cartoon "tttthat's all fffolks!" From here on your editor will be Maxine Murphy. Thanks for the ride!!
