West Central Cattleman’s Day set
By Robert Tigner
SW4 Extension Educator—
After two years of drought, we are hoping that normal rainfall will come soon. With that in mind many ranchers will think about how to rebuild their herds. University of Nebraska Extension’s West Central Cattleman’s Day will have “Rebuilding the Herd” as their theme.
The Red Willow Extension office will sponsor “Rebuilding the Herd” Monday, Nov. 25, at 6 p.m. CT at the Red Willow County Fairgrounds in McCook.
Pre-register by calling 308-882-4731 or 308-345-3390. The registration fee is $10 if registered by Nov. 21. Otherwise, it is $15 at the door. Meal is included.
