Stockmanship and Stewardship program to be held in Fort Collins Sept. 22-23
Colorado Beef Quality Assurance is hosting one of several new regional events for cattle producers as part of the Stockmanship and Stewardship program from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Colorado State University’s Agriculture Research, Development and Education Center in Fort Collins will house the event Sept. 22-23, which will feature world-renowned livestock behaviorist, Temple Grandin, Ph.D., as the keynote speaker. Other sessions will provide cattle handling strategies and education to help cattle producers improve their bottom lines.
Thanks to support from Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, the Stockmanship and Stewardship program has been expanding and enhancing its scope beyond the local events held in the past, according to Chase DeCoite, NCBA associate director for BQA. The regional series has already held events in California and Nebraska and has others slated throughout the country.
“Stockmanship and Stewardship sessions have become ‘must attend’ events for cattlemen and women who want to apply innovative and proven cattle handling strategies on their own operations,” said DeCoite. “These new regional programs will allow us to attract cattlemen from a larger area to a central location.”
