Event Information

The Ranch Management University is an intensive 5-day event targeting new or inexperienced ranchers and landowners and covers the fundamentals of soils and soil fertility, water well education, forage establishment, pasture management, and utilization by livestock. Basic livestock management practices such as castrating and vaccinating calves are demonstrated. Grazing management, stocking rate, and body condition scoring are also highlighted. Planning for profit, horse production, financial assistance programs, connections between agriculture and health, and ag laws Texas landowners need to know will also be discussed. Additionally, several wildlife management topics are covered for those interested in managing white-tailed deer, turkey, quail, feral hogs, and honeybees. Approximately one-half of the workshop involves lectures and discussion, with the remainder consisting of the field demonstrations of various how-to methods of soil sampling, calibrating sprayers, and inoculating legume seed. Various forage species, including bermudagrass, small grains, annual ryegrass, and clovers are studied by workshop attendees. A demonstration covering hog trap management will also be given. Plenty of time is allowed for interaction with Texas A&M University faculty with expertise and experience in all management facets of the soil-plant-animal interface and wildlife management.
The course will begin at 12:30 pm on Monday, October 24, 2022, and concludes at noon on Friday, October 28, 2022. On Tuesday - Thursday we will begin with breakfast (7:15 AM) and end with dinner (6:00 PM). Monday will end with dinner (6:00 PM) and Friday will be breakfast only (7:00 AM)
