UW Extension sets ranch seminars in Meeteetse, Basin

Extension educator Jeremiah Vardiman described efforts to use the alfalfa weeviul growing degree day calculator in Wyoming. Results showed the calculator does not accurately predict weevil development inn Wyoming.

Fall ranching seminars in Meeteetse and Basin will highlight important topics for managing cattle and connecting producers with the latest research from the University of Wyoming Extension, said Jeremiah Vardiman, northwest area agriculture and horticulture extension educator.

One seminar is Nov. 7 at the Meeteetse Conservation District, 1906 State, St. Meeteetse, with a free lunch provided by the Meeteetse Conservation District. The other seminar is Nov. 8 at the Big Horn County Fairgrounds in Basin with a free lunch from UW Extension.

Both seminars are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Presentation topics include:

“We are very excited to host Valerie Murray and highlighting the Murraymere Farms’ efforts in representing Wyoming beef in Taiwan,” said Vardiman.
