What Others Say…

“I have been nothing but impressed with the Cattleman U program. The ranching industry has changed so much in my lifetime, one will never be successful if they don’t try to benefit from knowledge and change. I give it a two thumbs up!”

So far I have found this to be an excellent resource. I grew up a town kid, dreaming of restarting the farm and raising cattle. I am now starting to make that a reality. There are a ton of classes and information out there for raising crops. But very little on the ins and outs of cattle and the cattle market. I have been searching for a program like this for years and I am excited to learn and help my operation as I move forward.

Full Day Workshop with Ranching for Profit

“Three Secrets to Increased Profit”

(virtual tickets available)

Most ranch jobs (whether it’s owner, manager, or hired hand) don’t come with a job description – and if they do, it probably isn’t accurate. This workshop will look at conventional ranching’s profitability, help you analyze your own situation, and identify opportunities to work ON the business instead of in it so you can be profitable.

You’ll walk away with:

  • Simple strategies to reduce your workload and increase profit.

  • Ways to take full advantage of your ranch’s “profit drivers.”

  • A plan to improve the financial health of your ranch.

 

The Ranching for Profit School will help you to find the breakthroughs that will improve the health and productivity of your ranch, the profitability of your business and the quality of your life. Through the program you can learn how to increase your profit, improve your management, improve the health of your herd and land and position your ranch to thrive for generations to come. They are ready to teach you how to make your ranch more profitable.

John Rose Stock Dog Demonstration

Award winning stock dog handler John Rose shows the benefits of working cattle with dogs and explains how to quickly, safely and efficiently move cattle.

 

John Rose is owner and manager of Rose Cattle Company. He grew up in Jerome, Idaho on a pure bred ranch. This is where his love for cattle and the industry started. John is a graduate of Cal Poly University with a degree in animal science. He moved to Three Forks, MT where he started Rose Cattle Company. John has a great eye for cattle and always strives to buy the best of the best. His buyers and sellers have become his friends over the past few years and he looks forward to working with you in the future. In his spare time (which is very limited) he spends time watching his children in their activities and working his stock dogs.

Curt Pate Low-stress Cattle Handling demonstration

Internationally-renowned stockman Curt Pate helps cattle producers understand how animals think and what handling methods provide the best experience both cow and handler both.

 

For more than a decade, Curt Pate has been conducting demonstrations and clinics on stockmanship, colt starting, horsemanship and safety. His abilities conducting both horsemanship and stockmanship demonstrations along with his ability as an effective communicator have made him a sought after clinician both on the national and international scene. His personal experience incorporating effective stockmanship principles supports a “for profit” mindset and focuses on highlighting the increased economic benefits of handling stock correctly. In addition, Curt recognizes the growing public scrutiny surrounding livestock production and the impact that improved livestock handling practices create for the sustainability of the cattle industry.
