Wyoming-Utah Ag Days to include livestock, resource management sessions
Two days of workshops ranging from livestock and land resource management to worker protection standards are Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 25-26, in Evanston.
University of Wyoming Extension and Utah State University Extension are collaborating for Wyoming/Utah Ag Days at the historic Evanston Roundhouse, said Bridger Feuz, UW Extension educator based in Uinta County.
“It’s a great program for producers in western Wyoming and northern Utah,” he said.
Wednesday sessions include Wyoming ranch tools, managing beef cows, improved irrigated pastures, soil health, grazing as a fuel reduction tool, sagebrush treatments for livestock and sage-grouse and a cattle market outlook by Feuz during lunch. Feuz specializes in livestock marketing.
Thursday’s additional sessions include worker protection standards, ranch horse care, evaluating farm/ranch financial health, biosecurity at horse shows, veterinary feed directive and a lunchtime sheep market outlook by Feuz.
The event, including lunch, is free. For more information or to RSVP for lunch, call the Uinta County extension office at 307-783-0570.
