Topics ranging from the cattle market outlook to sage grouse and deworming sheep are among topics at Wyoming-Utah Ag Days Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan. 23-24, in Evanston.
Sessions are 10 a.m.-3 p.m. each day at the Evanston Roundhouse, 1500 Main St., says Bridger Feuz, University of Wyoming Extension educator. Lunch is served each day if participants RSVP before 9 a.m. Jan. 22.
This is the second year of the program.
“The workshops are full of powerful presenters and timely and relevant topics,” Feuz says.
Day 1 topics include irrigation of forage, growing relationships with the next generation, the cattle market outlook, raising backyard chickens, rancher rules of thumb, backyard livestock production, winter livestock feeding and irrigated alfalfa variety performance.
Day 2 topics are weed identification and control, sage grouse and grazing, quantifying deworming in Wyoming sheep, litigation between the Western Watersheds Project and federal land management agencies, landscape-based riparian grazing, beekeeping 101, modern meat cuts (hands-on demonstration) and a question-and-answer session about meat and meat cutting.
Feuz says Cat Urbigkit, co-owner and editor of The Shepherd magazine, will speak about guardian dog use in large carnivore country during her keynote during lunch Tuesday. Urbigkit owns a western Wyoming sheep and cattle ranch. Feuz says she raises working livestock guardian dogs and travels the globe learning about guardian dog use in large carnivore country.
“People can come for the whole time on both days or pick and choose individual topics they wish to attend,” Feuz says.
