Ranchers gather for Idaho Range Livestock Symposium

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The Idaho Range Livestock Symposium was held in Twin Falls Wednesday.

Several speakers touched on various ranch related topics during the all day event at the Herrett Center. This included a grouse and graze study, how to write effective public comments to public agencies and local economic options for selling cull cattle.

Burke Teichert was the keynote speaker of the symposium who talked on improving ranch management, selecting a calving season that fits the environment and reducing the size of cows.

"You win more pounds per acre with smaller cows and then because calves are a little smaller, they will sell more per pound so I got more pounds to sell. Sell them for more money," Teichert said.

The University of Idaho Extension finished off the symposium tour in Rexburg on Friday.
