IHCC 14 held its Fall meeting on Saturday October 15, 2016 at the Ray Lin Dairy farm near Denair, CA.

 

Ray Prock greeted attendees and gave an overview of his farm that began in 1981 with a small dairy herd. With 550 Jersey cows, 4000 gallons of milk are produced daily for the local Hil Mar creamery. With 9 attendees we announced where we live and the type of IH equipment we own.

 

Roger Lubiens, President called the meeting to order and led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. Please note an IH wooden stand was crafted by member Jim Marshall of Beaverton OR that held the USA flag.
