EVANSTON — Wyoming-Utah Ag Days are Wednesday-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,” said 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, cheat grass, riparian grazing, using controlled burns to improve rangeland dominated by sagebrush, the economic value of winter forages, ATV use in agriculture and a bovine viral diarrhea discussion.
Feuz, 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 marking and a meat cutting demonstration.
Participants can attend any or all of the sessions but must RSVP to be included in the lunch sessions, said Feuz.
To reserve a meal for the lunch sessions, call (307) 783-0570 by 9 a.m. Jan. 28 and please leave a message if you get the voice mail, said Feuz.
