It is a great time to be in the cattle industry with unprecedented calf prices, good crops and good grass. At the same time, now is the time to plan for the future to hedge against unforeseen change. Remember what happened to agriculture in the 70s, the boom, and then the bust in the 80s? Remember the last drought? Now is the time to take advantage of these good times to prepare your livestock business for the lean times. What can a rancher do to take advantage of this opportunity? This will be a comprehensive workshop for pasture, range, and livestock management and the economics that affect your business!
