UW extension’s Master Cattleman Program earns top national honor

A program that promotes sustainability of Wyoming cattle producers is a national award winner from the National Association of County Agricultural Agents.

The Wyoming Master Cattleman Program received the top honor in the Search for Excellence in Farm and Ranch Financial Management category.

“It was a real honor to accept national recognition for the Wyoming Master Cattleman Program on behalf of the entire team that has worked on the project,” said Bridger Feuz, University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service educator based in Uinta County, who developed the program.



“The program represents the hard work and collaboration of many UW extension employees and other organizations in Wyoming, including the Wyoming Stock Growers Association and the Wyoming Business Council.”

More than 200 producers have participated in the program, which consists of eight, three-hour workshops sessions, the past three years and offered in 15 locations. Producers receive training in goal setting, insurance options, risk management strategies and financial enterprise analysis tools. They then use the tools in risk assessment and enterprise analysis practice sessions for an example ranch.



In evaluating the program, 119 out of the 120 producers who participated in evaluations said they would recommend the program to other producers.
