Sherri brought up an interesting point this morning during a phone conversation. She asked why no one was working to get State Regulations waived for exhibition poultry? I thought that very interesting and decided to do some research myself. I contacted Dr. Michael Herrin, Oklahoma Veterinary Services Assistant Director and the Coordinator of Oklahoma's Poultry Program. I relayed to him the frustrations of non Texas poultry exhibitors who would like to attend shows in Texas and asked where we could appeal to Texas officials to let non resident exhibitors show on a permit basis. He said a good place to start was with him. He said he converses with his Texas counterpart on a very regular basis. He has offered to talk with Texas officials and see what he can do to help get Okies and others on the Texas show scene.
Dr Herrin said he will keep me posted about this matter, but as you all know the wheels of government turn slow. I think you all should thank Sherri for having this idea and just another way she tries to keep the OEGB International Society on the cutting edge.
