Learning better stockmanship can pay in the corral and in the pasture. A series of clinics aims to teach more of these skills.
Stockmanship clinics scheduled across the nation from August to December.

Five National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) Stockmanship and Stewardship events are scheduled this summer and fall.

These workshops provide beef and dairy producers with hands-on training, cattle handling demonstrations, beef quality assurance (BQA) certifications and more. Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) serves as the premier sponsor of the Stockmanship and Stewardship program, allowing for the number and scope of the regional events to reach cattle producers in all corners of the country.

Here are those events scheduled for 2018:

  • Aug. 24-25, 2018 -- Clemson, South Carolina
  • Sept. 21-22, 2018 -- Montrose, Colorado
  • Oct. 5-6, 2018 -- Stephenville, Texas
  • Oct. 12-13, 2018 -- Pasco, Washington
  • Dec. 12-13, 2018 -- Tulare, California (dairy-focused)

The Stockmanship and Stewardship events will be led by Curt Pate and Ron Gill, who have hosted educational events at past NCBA trade shows in the trade show demonstration arena. Pate has been conducting demonstrations and clinics for more than a decade who educates and entertains audiences with his personal stories and innovative mindset. Gill is a beef producer and animal scientist for Texas AgriLife Extension who captivates the attention of cattlemen with his credibility as a rancher and ability to relate to his audience.
