County Farm and Ranch Days
Many University of Wyoming students are in Riverton to discuss Burcellosis and other issues at the County Farm and Ranch Days.
Brucellosis in Wyoming and more than 36 sessions -- ranging from heifer selection, cheatgrass and rangelands to the new farm bill -- are part of the 31st annual Fremont County Farm and Ranch Days in Riverton.
Sessions are Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 11-12, in the Armory Building at the Fremont County Fairgrounds. Sessions both days start at 9 a.m., and the last sessions begin at 3 p.m. The Fremont County office of University of Wyoming Extension sponsors the annual event.
The schedule and more information are at http://bit.ly/2015farmandranch. Sponsors provide free lunches both days.
Private applicator pesticide training is Wednesday, and Frank Galey, dean of UW’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, is that day’s featured lunch speaker. Galey is chairman of the Wyoming Brucellosis Coordination Team and will discuss brucellosis in Wyoming.
Sessions include farmers markets; dehydrating food; rodent identification for control; vehicle titling and licensing; custom vaccination programs for cattle; cover crops; grain bin safety; elderly scams and identification theft; beef prices for 2015; range and pasture insurance; and soil health.
