Fremont County Farm and Ranch Days features educational programs

Wyoming

Private pesticide classes, before and after wildfires and Wyoming Whiskey Marketing are among topics at Fremont County Farm and Ranch Days Jan. 30 to 31 in Riverton.

Sessions are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day in the Armory Building. Lunches both days are free.

"We have a great variety of educational programs that should be of interest to farmers, ranchers, husbands and wives, small-acreage owners and hired hands who work on farms and ranches," said Ron Cunningham, University of Wyoming Extension educator based in Fremont County. "The broad range of programs will get attendees up-to-speed with the latest and greatest in agriculture."

Steve Nalley, master brewer with Wyoming Whiskey, will discuss Wyoming Whiskey marketing during lunch Jan. 30. State Veterinarian Jim Logan is the Jan. 31 lunch speaker.

Sessions include recycling baler twine, GPS-driven farm/ranch equipment, understanding feed test reports, continuing gardening with limitations, new gas/diesel storage rules, harvesting and processing products from home beehives and post-drought or continuing drought management decisions for livestock producers.

"There will also be 30 to 40 vendors on hand to show off their new products and supplies," said Cunningham.

Private pesticide applicator training class is all day Jan. 31 presented by Cunningham and Lars Baker from the Fremont County Weed and Pest Control District.

For more information, contact Cunningham at 307-332-2363 or email him at ronc@uwyo.edu.
