Ranch Management for Successful Winter and Year Round Grazing of Beef Cattle

SAVE $10 with Early Bird Registration!  
Ends TOMORROW, July 31!


Amazing Grazing kicks off its second year of programming with a comprehensive, two-day workshop led by Dr. Jim Gerrish focusing on year round and winter grazing for cattle.

 

Join Dr. Jim Gerrish--a well-known and respected rancher, researcher and grazing educator who co-founded the Missouri Grazing School--on August 13-14 for "Ranch Management for Successful Winter and Year Round Grazing of Beef Cattle."

"Winter feed costs are generally the biggest determinant of profitability in the cow-calf business, but they don't have to be.  This workshop will get you well down the road to planning for and implementing year-round grazing on your farm or ranch," says Jim. 

Gerrish encourages ranchers to "throw off the hay addiction shackles of iron and oil and feel the freedom of grazing in the grass."

We will explore alternatives for extending the grazing season in different environments, effectively grazing winter range and pasture, as well as livestock selection and management to make sure the cows work for you, rather than you working for your cows!

Topics to be covered include: extending the grazing season, managing and planning for successful winter grazing including nutritional requirements, using winter annuals, effectively utilizing winter pastures for animal performance, managing animal costs, and how calving date effects profitability.

We encourage ranchers of all sizes to attend as you will learn valuable grazing information and management skills that will improve production and profitability of your  livestock enterprise.

Please feel free to contact Mary if you have any questions about the event or how to register.

 

We look forward to seeing you in Topeka!
