County Barn Rep Meeting Coming Up
Please join us on Saturday, April 7th from 1-3 p.m. for the next IBF County Rep meeting. The meeting will be held at the Carroll County Event and Education Center, 102 N. Fourth St., Suite A. It is located just east of Flora, off SR 18 at the 4-H Fairgrounds.
Tim Sheets will be giving a demo of the new barn surveying app. Following the demo he will guide everyone through the process of loading the app onto your Apple device (iPhone or iPad). Not only is it helpful to receive the how-to tutorial and be able to ask questions, there is also a bit more involved to loading the app than just going to the Apple Store and getting it.
If you are interested in surveying barns in your county but don’t have an Apple device, please consider coming anyway. It is a good opportunity to connect with fellow County Reps and be able to discuss the surveying process. And the IBF board wants to look into funding for the purchase of iPads that can be loaned out. So having received the how-to in person will be beneficial even if you won’t be surveying for awhile.
