The Elk Farming 101 class will be part of the North American Elk Breeders Associa- tion Annual Conference and Inter- national Antler Competition to be held Thursday through Saturday, Aug. 2-4 in Minneapolis. Minnesota Elk Breeders Associ- ation Executive Secretary Brenda Hartkopf says there is currently a shortage of animals to meet the public demand for domestic elk meat. "With wholesale elk meat prices at an all-time high, it's a good time to consider starting an elk herd," said Hartkopf. "The Elk Farming 101 class, plus a market- ing seminar and the antler compe- tition will provide a great oppor- tunity for people to learn about all aspects of the industry." There will also be a Select Qual- ity Elk Sale, the first of its kind in more than 10 years. Hartkopf says the sale showcases elk with some of the best antler genetics in the U.S. She says that while meat pro- duction is the end market, ant- ler production is what drives the industry. The Elk Farming 101 class is being offered at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest (formerly The North- land Inn), 7025 Northland Drive North, Minneapolis, MN 55428. The entire national event runs from Aug. 2-4.
