Cattle Industry Legends Lined Up to Lead Ranchers in Seeds for Success Grazing ConferenceFri, 06 Mar 2009 16:38:30 CST
Seeds for Success: Cattle Grazing Conference at Wilburton
On May 22-23, livestock industry legends Bud Williams, Greg Judy, and Donnell Brown will share their knowledge and experience at the “Seeds for Success” grazing conference at Eastern Oklahoma State College in Wilburton.
Bud Williams is highly sought after for his two-day seminars on low-stress livestock handling, developed through decades of experience on ranches all over the world.
Williams will condense his main principles on that topic, as well as his unique marketing approach, into a single three-hour session covering both marketing and stockmanship.
He will also explain how to make his ideas work for any operation, regardless of size, location, industry segment, and even market direction.
Greg Judy will spend Saturday morning covering high stock density grazing and his signature “no-risk ranching” approach.
Judy’s book, No Risk Ranching: Custom Grazing on Leased Land, explains “how to make a living from the land without owning it.”
That approach took Judy from 40 stockers to over 1,100 head, and enabled him to pay off his Missouri farm and home loan in three years.
Donnell Brown will describe how to match cattle to the environment in terms of both genetics and economics. Brown is the seedstock manager, and also handles marketing, for R.A. Brown Ranch in Throckmorton, Texas.
Conference registration costs $200 and includes meals. Those interested should RSVP with a $50 deposit by May 8 to Troy Walker, Eastern Oklahoma State College, Attn: Ag Division, 1301 West Main, Wilburton, OK 74578.
