Fallon/Carter Extension and the Little Beaver Conservation District invite you to our Innovative Ranching Workshop. The workshop January 5 will be featuring BEEF Magazine Columnist, Burke Teichert and a Bale Grazing Tour.
The Bale Grazing Tour will be showcased at the Bohle Angus Ranch of Plevna, Montana. Kalyn Bohle will explain how bale grazing has improved pasture fertility, boost soil health, and ultimately reduce business expenses. Join the tour and learn how to incorporate bale grazing into your ranch management.
Burke Teichert will be passing on his expertise on organizing cost-effective and efficient ranches with minimal labor requirements. Burke Teichert was born and raised on a family ranch in western Wyoming and earned a B.S. in ag business from Brigham Young University and M.S. in ag economics from University
of Wyoming. His work history includes serving as a university faculty member, cattle reproduction specialist, and manager of seven cattle ranches for Deseret Land and Cattle. Teichert retired in 2010 as vice president and general manager with AgReserves, Inc., where he was involved in seven major ranch acquisitions in the U.S. and the management of a number of farms and ranches in the U.S. as well as Canada and Argentina.
