New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service will host the Southeast Rancher’s Workshop April 26 at the Chaves County Fairgrounds in Roswell, New Mexico, to provide ranchers and agricultural producers with up-to-date information for everyday management decisions. 

The workshop will be hosted by NMSU Cooperative Extension Service Agents in Chaves, Eddy, Lea and Roosevelt counties. The event will last from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will cover topics such as beef quality assurance, marketing strategies, cattle growth and reproductive technologies, sheep and goat management, wildlife damage and mitigation and predator and fly control. Continuing education units will be available. 

“While the Rancher’s Workshop may be a time for producers to hear from experts in the field, it is also a great opportunity to network with your surrounding ranchers,” said Laci Kennedy, Lea County Extension agricultural agent.

There will be hands-on demonstrations available as well as a trade show with representatives from business and allied industries. 

Online registration is $25. Registration at the door is $35 and only checks will be accepted. For more information and to preregister for the event, visit https://ezregister.com/events/36272/.
