Wyoming-Utah Ag Days are Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 30-31, at the Roundhouse in Evanston.
Sessions both days are 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
“With many different breakout sessions to choose from, there is a lot to learn,” says Bridger Feuz, University of Wyoming Extension educator based in Uinta County. The program is in collaboration with Utah State University Cooperative Extension.
Wednesday sessions include beef quality assurance; body condition scoring; cheatgrass; riparian grazing; using control burns to improve rangeland dominated by sagebrush; the economic value of winter forages; all-terrain vehicle use in agriculture; and a bovine viral diarrhea discussion.
Feuz, UW Extension livestock marketing specialist, will forecast the market outlook during the Wednesday lunch. John Madany will discuss the book “Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production” by Nicolette Hahn Niman during lunch Thursday.
Thursday sessions include ag legacies; the small acre water guide; conservation techniques to increase grazing potential and natural resources; common mistakes in pasture management; sheep management strategies; cull cow marketing; and a meat cutting demonstration.
Participants can attend any or all of the sessions but must RSVP to be included in the lunch sessions, Feuz says.
To reserve a meal for the lunch sessions, call (307) 783-0570 by 9 a.m. Jan. 28 and leave a message if you get the voice mail.
