Registration Now Open for 2021 Stockmanship & Stewardship Events

Tue, 18 May 2021 09:24:08 CDT

Registration Now Open for 2021 Stockmanship & Stewardship Events Registration is now open for five events on the Stockmanship & Stewardship Regional Tour, with the first stop in Elko, Nev. in July. Events will also be held in Colorado, Indiana, Oregon and Kentucky.

Stockmanship & Stewardship is a unique two-day educational experience for cattle producers featuring low-stress cattle handling demonstrations, Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) educational sessions and facility design sessions. The program is sponsored by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), Merck Animal Health, and the Beef Checkoff-funded National Beef Quality Assurance program.

“These events allow producers to network with one another and learn from industry experts about real world solutions to everyday problems they encounter on their operations,” said Josh White, executive director of producer education and sustainability at NCBA. “Beyond animal handling, each of these events incorporates valuable information about animal health, environmental stewardship, and much more.”

The 2021 tour locations and dates are:
• Elko, Nev., July 16-17
• Durango, Colo., Aug. 27-28
• Danville, Ind., Sept. 10-11
• Ontario, Ore., Oct. 8-9
• Bowling Green, Ky., Oct. 22-23
By attending a Stockmanship & Stewardship event, producers may become BQA certified, network with fellow cattlemen and women, participate in hands-on demonstrations led by stockmanship experts including Curt Pate, Dr. Ron Gill and Dr. Dean Fish, and learn cutting-edge operation techniques.

“Merck Animal Health is honored to be the premier sponsor of this initiative for a third year, which very much complements our efforts to promote proper animal handling, animal welfare and beef quality assurance,” according to Kevin Mobley, executive director U.S. Cattle Sales and Marketing for Merck Animal Health. “Working with the NCBA and state cattle associations is another way that Merck Animal Health works for our beef producing customers, and we couldn’t be more excited to return in person to these important events.”
