A national award-winning livestock extension program is again being offered for 2014-2015 beginning in June and ending in January.
The High Plains Ranch Practicum School is an in-depth, ranch management school hosted jointly by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension and University of Wyoming Extension.
Classes are in Laramie, Riverton and Kimball, Neb.
“If you have ranched all your life, or if you are new to ranching, this school will teach valuable, necessary skills for running a successful ranch,” said UW Extension educator Dallas Mount, an instructor in the program. “Dad taught us how to build a fence and feed a cow, but he didn’t teach us how to build a business that generates an economic profit and supports the people who are building the fence and feeding the cow.”
Enrollment is limited to 35. Participants must submit an application by May 5.
