Cattle Raisers Group offers training and education to ranchers
The school will offer practical, hands-on training in the various business facets of ranching including live demonstrations on resource management and animal handling at a local ranch, as well as classroom sessions on numerous topics including tax implications of the drought; herd rebuilding; making the transition from the workplace to full-time ranching; estate planning and more.
“The Texas cattle industry has managed to stay strong in large part because Texas ranchers work to stay informed and up-to-date on practices that help their business,” said Joe Parker Jr., rancher and TSCRA president. “TSCRA’s School for Successful Ranching is another opportunity for ranchers to access valuable education and resources they will need to secure their operations for generations to come.”
The 136th annual Cattle Raisers Convention is March 22 – 24 at the Fort Worth Convention Center. Participants can register for the School for Successful Ranching on the TSCRA convention website.
Other highlights of the convention include the Cattle Raisers Expo, general sessions and committee breakout session covering a wide range of economic, ranching and wildlife topics.
A complete schedule can be found on the TSCRA convention website at www.tscra.org/convention. TSCRA will continue to update the schedule with additional events.
