The School for Successful Ranching, part of the 2019 Cattle Raisers Convention and Expo, March 29 to 31, Fort Worth Convention Center, is an essential event for ranchers and landowners who want to find real answers to their ranching questions.
Classes offered in the School centered on the leading subjects core to ranching – cattle selection and health management, improving the quality and fertility of your beef cattle herd, managing your ranch’s natural resources for sustainability and profitability and business and legal management of the ranching enterprise.
Dr. Rick Machen and Stan Bevers, with the King Ranch Insitute for Ranch Management, will open the 2019 School for Successful Ranching with an engaging estimate of what the world will look like in 20 years. Who will be our customers – local and abroad? What new tools will aid ranchers when they make breeding decisions? What new technologies will support ranching?
