Ranch management and cow herd economics will take center stage at Kansas State University’s Winter Ranch Management Seminar on Jan. 10, 2012. The seminar is planned for six locations around the state and features a combination of local speakers and webinar presentation delivery.

Seminar locations include Ashland, Highland, Lebanon, Manhattan, Parsons and Russell. All will start with registration at 4 p.m. (program beginning at 4:30 p.m.) and end at 8:30 p.m.

Featured speakers include Trey Patterson of Padlock Ranch, Dayton, Wyo., who will present “Ranch Management Focus” and Glynn Tonsor, K-State Research and Extension agricultural economist, who will give the “Cattle Business Outlook.” Both of these presentations will be delivered via webinar.

Local speakers at each location will give presentations on winter ration development and hunting lease management.

The cost to attend, which includes dinner, is $25 per person. Registration is due by Jan. 6. If more than one person attends from any farm, family or business, the price for additional attendees is $15 per person. More information about each location, plus online registration is available at http://www.asi.ksu.edu/rms. Information is also available by contacting Becky Ayres at 785-532-1281 or bayres@ksu.edu.
