HERMISTON - The first Chinook Series Banquet/Expo, which organizers intend to make an annual event, was earlier this month at the Cottage Flowers banquet room in Hermiston.

The speakers were Keith Calloway of Forage Genetics on pasture management, Curtis Johnston on horseshoeing, Brent Barton of Oregon Trail Veterinary Clinic on Coggins testing and colic prevention, state veterinarian Andrew Clark on West Nile Virus, Don Peter of Frontier Genetics on artificial insemination and Tim Neeley of Purina on horse nutrition.

The event also included booths from several local merchants and clubs. More than 65 people attended.

The sponsors - Cottonwood Farms of Boardman, and Stokes Landing Sport Horses of Irrigon - plan to make the expo an annual Hermiston event.
