The University of Arizona is supporting the needs of local livestock producers through educational workshops on best industry practices. The University’s College Agriculture, Life and Veterinary Sciences with the Cooperative Extension Service hosted a Livestock Producer Workshop for 63 participants from eight counties across Arizona and New Mexico. Ranchers and stakeholders requested educational training from the University of Arizona Extension for several issues they face in their day-to-day work. The workshop included lessons such as how to perform an ultrasound on pregnant cattle and how to make critical management decisions regarding livestock during drought conditions.
Through this workshop, the University of Arizona is working to address the needs to Arizona livestock producers and hopes to support the growth of their industry. Programs such as these are just one of the many ways the University of Arizona and extension agents are working to assist their community. The lessons taught in this workshop will help ranchers practice safe and effective methods to ensure animal safety and improved economic prosperity.
