ON-FARM LEARNING: Participants in the upcoming WIRED program, hosted by Minnesota CattleWomen, will have a full day of educational events, with hands-on learning and the opportunity to network.
The daylong event features hands-on learning of cattle work on a Tenstrike, Minn., farm.

The Minnesota CattleWomen are hosting a special event July 24: the American National CattleWomen’s Women In Ranching Education and Development (WIRED) program.

The goal of WIRED is to provide educational workshops and symposia that allow women to grow in their knowledge of and confidence in working with cattle; stay informed about new issues in the beef industry; and gain the tools and information needed to make management decisions while networking with their friends, neighbors, and new acquaintances.

Each event is tailored by the host state to meet the needs of CattleWomen in their region.

The Minnesota WIRED event will be held at the Mouser Hereford farm on July 24 in Tenstrike, Minn. The day will begin with breakfast and quickly move into hands-on cattle work. The focus will be on low-stress cattle handling; pen design options; calf processing; and chute-side work including vaccine handling, doctoring and branding.

After lunch, participants will hear updates from our sponsors, practice DNA sampling and placement of implants, and enjoy a panel discussion that will focus on putting all the working pieces of the beef industry together. Each attendee will leave this event Beef Quality Assurance-certified. The day will end with dinner and plenty of time to share ideas and visit.
