Calving Season: When is Optimal for your Ranch? Featuring Burke Teichert

Burke Teichert's "Calving Season: When is Optimal for your Ranch?"

Register before September 20th to save! This event is in-person and virtual.

Have you ever wondered about the possibility of changing calving season on your operation?  Is it feasible for your situation?  How much could you save in supplementation costs?  How would it affect breed up? Do I make the change all at once or a few weeks a year? Answers to these questions and advice from experienced managers will be available October 7th at the GranTree Inn in Bozeman.

“Perhaps no other management practice influences your ranch more than the time of year you calve,” (Rachel Frost, director of the Dan Scott Ranch Management Program). “Selecting a calving season that works for your operation and fits your environment is crucial to financial sustainability. We are excited to bring Burke Teichert and other producers to Bozeman to share expertise and experiences in adjusting calving season and how that can present new opportunities for your ranch.”

Registration cost is $100 through Sept. 20 and $150 thereafter.  Registration includes all meals and transportation for the day. Registrants can attend the event in-person or virtually for the same price. More information, a full agenda and online registration can be found at https://animalrange.montana.edu/danscott/danscottoutreach.html.
