Beef Cattle Nutrition Focus of UW Extension Workshop

Posted in

An upcoming workshop near Buffalo will focus on beef cow-calf ranchers who want to boost animal nutrition with well-defined forage supplements to improve animal performance, including conception rates, by matching their operation's annual cycle to the land.

The University of Wyoming Extension of Johnson County will present “Meeting the Nutritional Needs of Range Beef Cattle” January 17 and 18 at the conference center of the TA Guest Ranch, 13 miles south of Buffalo on Old Highway 87. The cost for the workshop is $80 for one participant, and $50 for additional participants from the same ranch. UW Extension Rangeland and Forage Management Educator Blaine Horn will lead the workshop with Jim Waggoner, who is the UW Extension Range Livestock Nutrition Management Specialist.

Horn said that it will be a highly interactive workshop, and they hope to provide an exciting and challenging forum in which to learn.
