DENVER (June 12, 2018) – Stockmanship & Stewardship is a unique two-day educational experience featuring low-stress cattle handling demonstrations, Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) educational sessions, and facility design sessions to best run your operation and industry updates. The program is sponsored by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), Boehringer Ingelheim, and the checkoff-funded National Beef Quality Assurance program.

The tour features stops in Clemson, S.C., from Aug. 24-25, Montrose, Colo., from Sept. 21-22, Stephenville, Texas, from Oct. 5-6, Pasco, Wash., from Oct. 12-13, and Tulare, Calif., from Dec. 12-13, and will be led by stockmanship experts Curt Pate, Ron Gill and Dean Fish.

“Improving your stockmanship skills is a very low cost, high return investment of time and money to improve profit and the quality of life for humans and animals,” said stockmanship expert Curt Pate, “and that’s what the Stockmanship & Stewardship programs are all about.”

By attending a Stockmanship & Stewardship event, producers will have the opportunity to become BQA certified, network with fellow producers, partake in hands-on demonstrations from stockmanship experts and learn cutting-edge operation techniques.

“These events allow producers to network with one another and learn from industry experts about real world solutions to everyday problems they encounter on their operations,” said Chase DeCoite, the director of Beef Quality Assurance for NCBA. “Beyond animal handling, each of these events incorporates valuable information about animal health, environmental stewardship, and much more.”
