Stockmanship & Stewardship (Beef)
October 12 - October 13
Registration Open for 2018 Stockmanship & Stewardship Regional Event
Cattle producers can register now for the Stockmanship & Stewardship Regional event which will be held at the TRAC facility in Pasco, Wash., on October 12-13 and will feature stockmanship experts Curt Pate and Ron Gill.
Stockmanship & Stewardship is a unique two-day educational experience featuring low-stress cattle handling demonstrations, Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) educational sessions to best run your operation and industry updates. With a regional focus in mind, the planning committee of Washington, Idaho and Oregon Cooperative Extension staff will be sharing applicable research in beef production, animal health as well as range and pasture management for Pacific Northwest beef producers.
“Improving your stockmanship skills is a very low cost, high return investment of time and money to improve profit and the quality of life for humans and animals,” said stockmanship expert Curt Pate, “and that’s what the Stockmanship & Stewardship programs are all about.”
By attending this Stockmanship & Stewardship event, producers will have the opportunity to become BQA certified, network with fellow producers, partake in hands-on demonstrations from stockmanship experts as well as learn grazing management techniques. There will also be a Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) certification which many local fairs are now requiring of their youth exhibitors.
“These events allow producers to network with one another and learn from industry experts about real world solutions to everyday problems they encounter on their operations,” said Chase DeCoite, the director of Beef Quality Assurance for NCBA. “Beyond animal handling, each of these events incorporates valuable information about animal health, environmental stewardship, and much more.”
The program is sponsored by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), Boehringer Ingelheim, and the checkoff-funded National Beef Quality Assurance program.
