REGISTRATION FEE:  $350 for Adults and $300 for College and High School Students.  This covers the cost of supplies and practice cows used at the school.  This program is limited to 15 students in order to insure as much one-to-one help during practice as possible.  Therefore, registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
