Building on our past success . . .
The Saskatchewan Pasture School has a new theme this year as we move to create a
Case Study of a Working Ranch. On day one, we will tour and discuss the merits of the
ranch’s pastures, handling facilities and water systems. On day two, we’ll bring the ranch
to the classroom to develop a plan including grazing rotations and management ideas.

The school will cover various topics including . . .
• Tame pasture
• Native prairie
• Managing pasture rotations
• Pasture pipelines
• Brush encroachment
• Pasture rejuvenation
• Fencing methods
• Cattle handling
• Forage quality
• How to design a grazing plan
• Profitability

PLUS . . .
• Evening entertainment
