Association Perspective

Since 1906, the National Western Stock Show has served as the meeting place between commercial cattlemen and their Angus seedstock providers. For the American Angus Association, the celebrated weeklong event is filled with shows and sales. The week allows our members the opportunity to showcase their genetics to cattlemen across the country. I can’t think of any better place for cattlemen to philosophize about the cattle business other than Denver, Colo., in January.

After celebrating 110 years of western heritage, a new dawn is rising for the city of Denver and the National Western with a projected $1-billion project — the new National Western Complex. A majority of the funds for the project come from extending the lodging and car rental taxes in the county of Denver. The project will give exhibitors, vendors and spectators a new venue to last the next 100-150 years. The construction will happen during the next several years and will be broken into three phases.

Wheat Grazing Webinar Planned for Jan. 28

Managing cattle on wheat pasture in the winter months can have big payoffs, but can also require attention to time and intensity.

The free webinar will be hosted by Great Plains Grazing, a USDA-Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Coordinated Agricultural Project grant.

Attendees can expect to learn about topics including wheat pasture as a forage system; management of dual-purpose wheat systems; use of mobile device to manage grazing intensity; and discussion of varieties’ characteristics for dual-purpose wheat production.
