Sign Up Early for the 11th Bi-Annual International Pheasant Management Seminar March 4-7, 2018

On December 7, 2017 in seminar by spope

It is our pleasure at MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc. to announce that the Bi-Annual International Pheasant Management Seminar will be held March 4-7, 2018 in Janesville,  WI.  Let me share what Darrell Meineke, from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, said about the 2016 seminar.

Where do I begin,” he said. “I had such an incredible time at the seminar. Bill MacFarlane is an absolute professional and put together an event that far exceeded my expectations. The speakers and meaty topics were amazing and the whole atmosphere lent itself to learning and networking so that game bird producers on a world wide scale can take away incredibly valuable information and industry contacts that will benefit any size producer.” 

We have planned the 2018 seminar to be just as exciting and informative as past years. Our speakers are the best in the business and we are delighted to have them share their knowledge with other game bird growers. The topics and our speakers are listed below, but a full schedule with times and lunch and dinner sites is available on our website.
