Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

A local discussion of current science and issues concerning dairying in northwest iowa

This week the 2012-2013 Wichita County Horseman’s Directory hit the local stores. Over 2,500 copies are printed by the Wichita Extension Horse Committee (WEHC) on a bi-annual basis. The publication is iconic in the area horse community and can be found on pickup dashboards and glove compartments as well as office desks and on the “phonebook” shelf. And maybe the best part is it is free to the public.

The contents range from a comprehensive list of equine service providers including addresses and phone numbers, informational articles and advertisements for the goods and services that horse owners use every day.

This is the fifth edition of the “Directory” that Jack Spanable has edited and it looks like he has out-done himself again. This issue’s cover photo is from Sidney Dunkel, the 13-year-old daughter of Doug and Jill Dunkel of Archer City. She has been riding horses most of her life and loves lining on her family’s ranch. She is active in her 4-H club and shows horses in several different events, show cattle and participates in cooking, photography and veterinary science projects.  She took the photo on the cover while walking out in the pasture with the horses.

The WEHC provides the directory to local businesses free of charge. It can be found at feed and farm stores, auto and farm equipment dealerships, clothing stores and specialty shops plus many other businesses in the area. If you don’t see it on the counter, ask for it or stop by the Extension office to pick one up
