Dr. Kent Anderson and Dave Pratt to Speak at Wyoming Stock Growers Association 2016 Summer Convention “Educating for Ranching Success in the 21st Century”

Cheyenne, WY – June 3, 2016 – The Wyoming Stock Growers Association (WSGA) welcomes cattle producers and agricultural enthusiasts from across the state to this year’s WSGA Cattlemen’s College, to be held Friday, June 3, 2016 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, during the annual Wyoming Cattle Industry Convention & Trade Show in Laramie, Wyo., June 1-4. The event, which is sponsored in part by Zoetis, will feature speakers and sessions encompassing a variety of topics important to farm and ranch owners and managers. 

“Providing solid information that can enhance the productivity and profitability of Wyoming ranchers is one of the core missions of Wyoming Stock Growers,” states WSGA Executive Vice President Jim Magagna. “Over the past 15 years Zoetis and their predecessor company have been indispensable partners in enabling us to deliver quality educational programs to our membership through their sponsorship of Cattlemen’s Colleges.”

Topics at this year’s Cattlemen’s College will include “DNA Testing to Enhance Profitability” from Dr. Kent Anderson starting at 8:00 AM and the “Three Secrets for Increasing Profit” given by Dave Pratt of Ranch Management Consultants, Inc. beginning at 9:45 AM and 2:00 PM.

“The Cattleman’s college will offer a chance for ranchers, young and old, to learn tools that will help increase their profitability for years to come.  The presenters are some of the nation’s best, and this is one of the best chances I’ve seen for producers to learn quality necessary information that I have seen come to Wyoming in some time, “states Young Producer Assembly Board Member and Lusk rancher, Sage Askin. “Both speakers are known for their innovated ranching practices from the genetics of the cowherd to the operations bottom line. You won’t want to miss this great educational session during the 2016 Wyoming Cattle Industry Convention & Trade Show.”

Producers and community members interested in attending the event should register on the Wyoming Stock Growers Association website, www.wysg.org, by contacting the WSGA office for additional information at (307) 638-3942 or visiting the WSGA registration booth at the event.
