Stockmanship & Stewardship/Women in Ranching Education & Development Joint Program

July 16-18, 2021

Elko County Fairgrounds | Elko, Nevada

The Elko Stockmanship & Stewardship (S&S) program, a nation-wide educational tour that brings world-renowned clinicians to several locations each year for top-notch learning opportunities, is gearing up to be an event not to be missed.  

Producers from Nevada and other western states will be able to enjoy a unique educational experience featuring low-stress cattle handling demonstrations, Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) educational sessions, industry updates, and cutting-edge operation techniques specific to western producers. The event will also provide opportunities to network with fellow producers and partake in hands-on demonstrations from stockmanship experts Curt Pate, Ron Gill and Dean Fish.

Specific topics taking shape include low-stress cattle handling techniques on horseback and on foot, as well as out on the open range; a stock dog demonstration; chute-side vaccination tips and demonstrations; BQA certification; and several other educational topics unique to the western cattle producer.

The Elko Stockmanship & Stewardship event is unique in that it is also being held in conjunction with the American National CattleWomen’s WIRED (Women in Ranching Education and Development), allowing cattlemen and women from across the west to benefit from high-quality education on important topics that both events offer.

The Stockmanship & Stewardship program is sponsored by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), a contractor to the Beef Checkoff, Merck Animal Health, the Nevada Beef Council, and the Beef Checkoff-funded National Beef Quality Assurance program.

Registration is expected to launch in late spring, and will be available at stockmanshipandstewardship.org. Click on the Elko event for details, an event schedule, and registration options. Because this is a joint effort between the WIRED and S&S programs, producers will be able to register for either or both events on the site. 

We hope producers from all over Nevada will join us for this exciting and educational event!
