    Hi. Does anyone know when some upcoming small animal & poultry swaps will be in Missouri? I know about the one at Jacob's Cave but don't have the dates for any others this year yet.
    Thanks in advance!

    tsdave,
    If you mean the Fruitland that's north of Jackson-Cape Girardeau area, it starts the second Saturday of March, every second Saturday of each month up to Oct. That's at the stockyard building, better be there early.
