Buchman special guest at livestock meeting

RUSHVILLE — There will be a county-wide livestock meeting at 6 p.m. March 12 at the Root Building at the Rush County Fairgrounds.

The meeting is co-sponsored by Rush County Extension Service and Jackman Animal Clinic and includes a free meal catered by J&D Catering.

Special guest will be Angela Buchman discussing Indiana weather with, “Indiana weather is never boring.”

Buchman is a meterologist. She left WISH-TV last August and is expected to begin at WTHR-TV Channel 13 later this year after a one-year noncompete clause expires.

Buchman is an Indianapolis-area native who joined WISH in 2001 after spending four years with a station in Sacramento, Calif.

She has noted on Twitter that she’s looking forward to returning to the air in the fall and currently has been offering weather updates on Twitter for approximately 7,000 followers.

“LongRange” a new tool for parasites, will also be presented by Thomas R. VanDyke, DVM, Merial Large Animal Veterinary Services.

Reservations are required for a meal count by Friday, March 8 to 932-5974 or 629-2134.
