CANADIAN – A 10-month Grass Grazing and Animal Management School coordinated by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Hemphill County will kick off July 17 in Canadian.
The school will meet from 1-5 p.m. each third Wednesday of the month through April in the Hemphill County Exhibition Center, 10965 Exhibition Center Lane, said Andy Holloway, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Hemphill County.
“This is the beginning of 40 hours of in-depth educational training for ranchers, landowners and any stakeholders interested in advancing the value of their agricultural endeavors,” Holloway said. “They will learn strategies, techniques and valuable time-tested practices to lower costs and inputs, improve profits and increase their level of stewardship over the land and livestock they own or manage.”
The cost is $400 per person. There are a maximum of 30 spots available on a first-come basis. AgriLife Extension’s Hemphill County office can accept credit and debit cards or a check. To register or request a registration form, contact Christa Perry at 806-323-9114 or Christa.perry@ag.tamu.edu.
Holloway said he co-founded this program with Dr. Tim Steffens, AgriLife Extension range specialist and West Texas A&M University assistant professor in Canyon. To date, 81 participants have attended in the past three years in Hemphill County from 12 Texas counties and three states.
“Dr. Steffens will be our course instructor,” Holloway said. “He has been a rancher himself as well as a proven research range scientist who relates to producers extremely well.”
Topics will be:
– Economics of a grazing-based operation with an emphasis on cow-calf production.
– Basic understanding of ecological processes and how grazing affects the process.
– How plants react to defoliation; ramifications for the plant and its competitive ability with neighbors; and risks associated with drought.
– Animal nutrition and reproduction.
– Livestock interaction with the plants, such as distribution, selection of diet.
– Managed grazing to achieve desired economic, production and rangeland goals.
– Goal setting and monitoring to determine progress toward those goals.
– Infrastructure development and planning.

“We will need to have at least 15 people signed up by Jan. 15 to hold this school, so we are asking those interested to get preregistered as soon as possible,” said Robert Scott, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Lubbock County. “If we do not get enough interest, we will cancel the program.”
The school will provide 40 hours of in-depth training on profitable and productive management of livestock to achieve lifestyle, livelihood and landscape goals. It will meet from 1-5 p.m. each third Wednesday of the month through November.
Scott said the class will be limited to 30 attendees. Registration is $400 per producer. This includes a thumb drive with learning materials and any handouts for the class. If more than one person from the same operation attends, those after the first attend for $300.
To preregister, contact Scott at rj-scott@tamu.edu or call 806-775-1740.
Course instructor will be Dr. Tim Steffens, AgriLife Extension range specialist in Canyon.
Topics will be:
– Economics of a grazing-based operation with an emphasis on cow-calf production.
– Basic understanding of ecological processes driving grazed pasture productivity.
– How plants react to defoliation, ramifications for competitive relationships with ungrazed or weedy neighbors, risks associated with drought.
– Animal nutrition and reproduction.
– Livestock interaction with the plants, e.g. distribution, selection of diet.
– Managed grazing to achieve desired economic, production and rangeland goals.
– Goal-setting and monitoring to determine progress toward those goals.
– Infrastructure development and planning.
“With the market down now, it is important to make the most of the forages we have at low cost,” Steffens said. “The information you learn by attending every session should save or make you way more than $400.”
