Winter grazing seminar Jan. 17-18 in Glasgow

Montana ranchers interested in boosting cattle performance, hearing an overview of sage-grouse conservation efforts, or getting a long-term perspective on the cattle market will not want to miss the 2017 Winter Grazing Seminar, set for Jan. 17-18 at the Cottonwood Inn and Suites in Glasgow.

“This year’s seminar will offer in-depth discussions of topics such as winter feeding and forage management, mineral supplements, and stock management before and after calving,” said Stacey Barta, Rangeland Resources Program Coordinator with the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation. “It’s a great opportunity to meet with other producers and hear from the specialists in a relaxed setting.”

There is a registration fee that includes lunch on both day and a banquet on the evening of Jan. 17. The banquet will include a no-host social and guest speaker Bruce Vincent, a nationally recognized voice for agriculture, rural communities and conservation.

This year’s Winter Grazing seminar is hosted by the Valley County Conservation District. For more information, including an agenda and link to online registration, visit
