Ranch Management Forum Goes Virtual

The Saskatchewan Ranch Management Forum gets underway next week.
 
This year's event is free and is being held online for a couple of hours each day over the next two weeks.
 
Livestock and Feed Extension Specialist Alexis DeCorby says the first week focuses on Forages and covers a wide variety of topics:
 
" The first day is actually just General Forage Agronomy making sure that your stand actually establish. Day two is Rejuvenating Your Forage Stand, we're then going to move into a little bit of a different topic, and we're going to talk about some New Varieties. We're going to cap off the week with a couple more topics including Corn for Cows and also Cover Crops/Poly Crops and how those can be utilized in your new forage rotation going forward."
 
She notes the seminars during the first week will take place live from 12:30 to 2 pm, while the second weeks presentations run from 7 to 8:30 pm.
 
DeCorby says the focus during the second week will be on Improving Your Herd.
 
Presentations include Selecting the Right Bull for Your Herd, Maintaining Your Herd Bulls, Understanding Johne's Disease, Mineral Programs and Extensive Winter Feeding Systems and Parasitic Drug Resistance and Dealing with Common Cattle Pests.
