The University of Nevada, Reno will host the annual Cattlemen’s Update in person and virtually in 2022, Jan. 10 – 14. For more than 40 years, the University has held several sessions across Nevada in January to provide ranchers with current research-based information about issues that may affect the efficiency, productivity, profitability and sustainability of their businesses and Nevada’s cattle industry.
The five-day event, offered virtually once and then at six locations across the state, is a partnership led by the University’s College of Agriculture, Biotechnology & Natural Resources, and its Extension and Experiment Station units. Other program partners include local sponsors and U.S. Department of Agriculture. peakers for this year include State Veterinarian Amy Mitchell, animal reproductive physiology expert Carson Anderson Oney, Professor and Extension Educator for Humboldt County Brad Schultz, and Associate Professor of Rangeland Sciences and Extension Specialist Paul Meiman
At the three- to four-hour sessions, experts will discuss pertinent topics with participants, including topics on animal health and cattle markets and production. The cost is $20 per ranch per location attended, which includes lunch or dinner, event proceedings and the “Red Book” recordkeeping guide for cattle producers.
