First Master Cattleman Youth Challenge set for July


The first Master Cattleman Youth Challenge is July 9 to 10, near Lingle, Wyo.

This two-day program is open to all Wyoming 4-Hers at least 14 years of age, and enrolled in at least their second year of the 4-H beef project, and FFA members, said Kellie Chichester, UW Extension educator. The program is at the James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center.

Participants will learn goal setting, risk management, partial budgeting, niche marketing and genetics. On the second day, the group will tour a cattle operation, SAREC and finish the day applying what they learned by working through a comprehensive scenario.

This program is modeled after the Master Cattleman program that targets ranch owners and operators and the management strategies used in ranch scenarios.

The Master Cattleman Youth Challenge is supported by the UW Extension Profitable and Sustainable Agricultural Systems team, 4-H initiatives, Right Risk and the United States Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency.

For questions and more information, contact Chichester at or 307-721-2571.
