Advanced Ranching Classes Offered to Cattle Raisers at TSCRA Convention

Fri, 17 Feb 2012 15:25:54 CST

Ranchers and landowners interested in gaining practical and useful training in the various business facets of ranching should attend the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association's (TSCRA) 18th annual School for Successful Ranching March 29-March 31 during the TSCRA Convention Weekend in Fort Worth.

"TSCRA's School for Successful Ranching is an opportunity for ranchers to gain the education and resources they need to manage their cattle operation successfully into the future," said Joe Parker Jr., rancher and TSCRA president.

On Thursday, March 29, school participants will attend a special series of live demonstrations. Day 2 of the school offers 10 classes covering a variety of issues. New to this year’s school are advanced ranching classes on ranch accounting, genomics and water management. These sessions are designed to keep even the most experienced rancher on the cutting edge of emerging management techniques to stay competitive.

Wayne Garrett, founding partner of the CPA and Wealth Management firm Snow, Garret and Co., will speak to ranchers about record keeping systems and what is necessary to keep a cattle business profitable and legal.

Speakers from two of the leading companies in cattle genetics will talk about advanced genomics. Dustin Dean, Sexing Technologies, and Roger Wann, ABS Global, will show ranchers new genomic technology and help them develop a cost-effective implementation plan for gathering and using genetic information.

Bob Lusk, editor, Pond Boss magazine, will guide ranchers through new and better water management practices for their livestock.
