February 2019

We’re proud to host the third Rural Ranching Women workshop in Maple Creek from February 28 to March 1, 2019. This event provides livestock and forage production and management information to ranchers. The wide variety of topics covered are all important pieces of information when it comes to running a ranch.

Celebrating Rural Ranching Women 2019 will kick off on the evening of Thursday, February 28 with Kim Keller of the Do More Agriculture Foundation talking about Ag Awareness and Mental Health in Agriculture. The following day will feature a Cattle Market Update from Anne Wasko of Gateway Livestock; Vaccination Strategies with Karen Wagner of Maple Creek Veterinary Services; Fire and Grazing Management with Amanda J Miller of Alberta Agriculture. Miles Anderson, recipient of The Environment Stewardship Award (TESA) in 2016, will present the Species at Risk Act and How It Affects Ranchers. A producer panel will discuss Adapting to Changing Technologies and Verified Beef Production + on the ranch. Dereka Thibault of RBC will provide insight into Succession Planning. In addition, Regional Specialists from the Ministry of Agriculture will be available to answer questions on livestock water quality, alternative feeding strategies and the Canadian Agriculture Partnership (CAP) program funding options.

Maple Creek is a fantastic venue for this event, located in close proximity to many livestock operations in Saskatchewan. To register or for more information on Celebrating Rural Ranching Women 2019 please contact the Agriculture Knowledge Centre at 1-866-457-2377.
