Cattle Handling Demonstrations



Cattle Handling Demonstrations in the Expo

Attendees will feel right at home as the Expo floor is transformed into a dirt arena, complete with cattle, panels, and cattle handling equipment. Open to all attendees, the cattle handling sessions are very popular and the stands will be packed with your fellow ranchers. Sessions below will be repeated on Friday and Saturday during the Expo.

Topics include:

What Are My Cattle Worth? Cattle Buyers Give Their Opinions 
Have you ever wondered why two animals at the livestock market can look identical yet bring very different prices? This is your opportunity to understand why. A panel of order buyers and livestock marketing professionals will evaluate different types of cattle and give you their opinions on what each is worth. Come learn how marketers are evaluating your animals and how to top the market the next time you sell your cattle. 
 
Safe Cattle Handling
Most ranching accidents happen when processing cattle. Learn the techniques and methods that improve gathering, penning and working cattle on foot. When done properly, cattle handling can be less stressful for both people and cattle. Ron Gill will bring his popular and proven Stockmanship and Stewardship principles into the Expo and show attendees the best way to handle cattle.
 
Selecting the Right Cattle Handling Equipment
Did you know that your choice of cattle handling equipment and panels can have a dramatic impact on your cattle and taxes? Come learn from the experts at Priefert Ranch Equipment as they show you how to right-size your cattle handling equipment to fit your operation. You’ll also learn how to plan for future expansion in your facility while minimizing the tax consequences of permanent facilities. 
 
Why Weigh? 
One of the most basic tools to improve herds is a simple scale. This simple upgrade to your cattle management plan can help you better monitor cattle performance, make better decisions and ultimately lead to greater profit. You’ll see firsthand how easy it can be to weigh cattle and set yourself up to gather the right kind of information on your cattle.
