Cattlemen’s Update returns to provide market, production and research updates
The University of Nevada, Reno will host the annual Cattlemen’s Update January 10-14, 2022 in person and virtually. For more than 40 years, the university has hosted multiple meetings across Nevada in January to provide ranchers with updated, research-based information on topics that can affect the efficiency, productivity, profitability, and sustainability of their businesses and Nevada’s cattle industry.
The five-day event, offered virtually once and then in six locations across the state, is a partnership led by the university’s College of Agriculture, Biotechnology & Natural Resources and its expansion and experimentation station. Other program partners include local sponsors and the US Department of Agriculture. Speakers this year include State Veterinarian Amy Mitchell, Churchill County’s Education Teacher Carson Anderson Oney, Humboldt County’s Professor and Expansion Educator Brad Schultz, and Rangeland Sciences Associate Professor and Expansion Specialist Paul Meiman.
In the three to four-hour sessions, experts discuss relevant topics with the participants, including animal health, beef markets and production. The cost is $ 20 per ranch per location visited, including lunch or dinner, event minutes, and the Ranchers’ Red Book documentation guide.
