The Ranch Management University is an intensive 5-day event targeting new /inexperienced and seasoned ranchers and landowners covering the fundamentals of soils/soil fertility, forage establishment, pasture management, and utilization by livestock. Basic livestock management practices such as castrating and vaccinating calves are demonstrated. Grazing management, stocking rate, and body condition scoring are also highlighted.
