Comments: What a way to start off the bred heifer offering. This Benz heifer exemplifies everything you want in a front pasture female. Sweet necked, powerful through her hip, and stands on a great foot and bone. This is the kind that doesn’t come along very often.

McPHERSON, Kan. — Dr. Jim Gerrish, well-known rancher, researcher, grazing educator, and co-founder of the Missouri Grazing School returns to Kansas this August to kick off Amazing Grazing II for Ruminants Great and Small. A workshop entitled “Ranch Management for Successful Winter and Year Round Grazing of Beef Cattle” will be held from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM August 13-14, 2014 at Topeka Ramada, 420 SE 6th St. Topeka, KS.
Better management of ranch resources will lead to increased performance of the grass and forages, and Dr. Gerrish will be able to help producers make better choices for their pasture situation. Many ranchers are currently being forced to de-stock due to drought conditions and lack of forage. Ranch managers will learn valuable grazing information and management skills that will improve production and profitability.
When asked why a producer should attend this meeting, Gerrish replied, “Winter feed costs are generally the biggest determinant of profitability in the cow-calf business, but they don’t have to be. This workshop will get you well down the road to planning for and implementing year-round grazing on your farm or ranch.” Gerrish went on to say, “Throw off the hay addiction shackles of iron and oil and feel the freedom of grazing in the grass. We will explore alternatives for extending the grazing season in different environments, effectively grazing winter range and pasture, as well as livestock selection and management to make sure the cows work for you, rather than you working for your cows.”
Topics to be covered include extending the grazing season, managing and planning for successful winter grazing including nutritional requirements, using winter annuals, effectively utilizing winter pastures for animal performance, managing animal costs, and how calving date effects profitability.
Program Director Mary Howell reports, “Amazing Grazing II was written specifically to address many of the issues livestock producers keep asking for. Two days spent with Jim will be well-worth the time and money invested.” Howell goes on to say, “Ranch managers will learn valuable grazing information and management skills that will improve production and profitability of their livestock enterprise.”
Cost for the workshop is $90.00, which includes lunch and handouts. Please register online at: www.AmazingGrazingKansas.com, contact Mary Howell at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 785-562-8726.
