The King Ranch® Institute for Ranch Management at Texas A&M Unversity-Kingsville teaches graduate students using a multi-disciplinary, systems approach to ranch management, and provides the highest quality lectureships and symposia to stakeholders in the ranching industry. We serve the ranching industry by empowering graduate students and outreach attendees with skills that will enable them to strategically manage complex ranching operations and successfully lead our industry.

Producers here Northern Ag Network country won't even have to travel to Texas to enhance their education opportunities. Lectureships will hosted in part by Montana State University and South Dakota State University. The two lectureships will be held in Bozeman and Rapid City.

The Bozeman event will be held on May 8th and 9th at the Grantree Inn. The Rapid City event will take place the following week on May 11th and 12th at the Rushmore Inn and Suites. 

 In recent decades, genetic technology has evolved at a rapid pace. Keeping up with the genetic selection and evaluation innovations, and understanding which advancements are practical for your operation can be daunting. This lectureship will not only strengthen the foundational understanding of genetic principles among attendees, but it will also build upon them to enable attendees to apply advanced genetic technologies in the real world of seedstock and commercial cattle production.

 

Cost of the event is just $300 dollars and that covers materials, equipment, refreshments and meals.

The learning objectives are:  


  • Develop breeding objectives by identifying environmental constraints, marketing alternatives, and the economic relevancy of traits
  • Decipher performance measures, adjusted data, ratios, and Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs)
  • Understand selection accuracy, confidence intervals, and strategies for multiple trait selection
  • Application of advanced genetic tools including genomically enhanced EPDs and marker assisted management in genetic advancement
