UW Extension hosts range beef cattle nutrition workshop in Gillette
Join the University of Wyoming Extension for a workshop to learn more about meeting the nutritional needs of range beef cattle Tuesday-Wednesday, Feb. 5-6, at the Campbell County Library Pioneer Room, 2101 South 4J Road, Gillette.
The workshop was created to help cattle ranchers improve their understanding of rangeland pastures as a source for feed energy and how to optimize supplement feed costs to help maximize profitability, said Blaine Horn, a UW Extension rangeland educator for northeast Wyoming.
The workshop is limited to 20 participants. This is a highly interactive workshop and includes discussions of the topics and opportunities for questions and answers, said Horn. The workshop includes hands-on activities and exercises to stimulate learning and understanding the material.
Workshops are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both days.
To register, contact the Johnson County extension office at 307-684-7522. Attendees must register by Jan. 31. The registration fee is $50 for the first person and $25 for each additional person from the ranch. The registration fee includes break refreshments, lunches and other workshop costs.
