Heifer International is in its sixty-third year of helping people around the world move from a life of poverty to one of self-sufficiency by giving them animals that can both improve the families health and nutrition, and provide a source of income.  Each family is required to “pass on the gift” by giving the first off-spring from their animal to another family.

Registration and a fee ($10) are required for the Saturday event only.   Please send your contact information and fee to Isaac Johnson, Heifer International, 3009 David Drive, Columbia, MO  65202 by Monday, March 19th.   For more information please contact Carol Oliver at oliver@umocm.com  or Isaac Johnson at Johnson@umocm.com or at 573-474-7155.

For more than Sixty years Heifer International has strived to promote peace through working to end world hunger.  Heifer provides livestock and training to families in need who, in turn, “pass on the gift” to other families in their community.  A gift to Heifer truly is a gift that keeps on giving.
