Rimbey is among a half-dozen Alberta communities that will host a Cow Calfenomics course this year.
Organized by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development in partnership with Farm Credit Canada, Agriculture Financial Services Corporation, Alberta Beef Producers and Agriculture Research and Extension Council of Alberta, the 2012 program has been given the theme Transition, Tools and Technologies. Sessions will include: transitioning the business: a next generation perspective; strategic risk management for cattle producers; cattle price insurance program; economic value of genomics; BIXS/trace back; and profitable strategies for full-time ranching.
Now in its third year, Cow Calfenomics will be offered in Rimbey on Nov. 22. To register, call Alberta Agriculture’s Ag-Info Centre at 1-800-387-6030.
