You Are Invited!!  Peace Region 4-H Beef Members, Leaders and Families

The Peace Country Beef & Forage Association would like to invite all Peace Region 4-H Beef Members to an event we are hosting on Saturday, June 23rd: More Grass, More Profit and a Better Quality of Life. 

Date: Saturday, June 23rd 

Time: 9:30 registration, 10:00 start time, wrap up around 4 pm 

Location: south of Valleyview at the Hanson Ranch (call our office for directions)

Cost: $30/MEMBER, $50 MEMBER PAIR $40/NON-MEMBER, $70 NON-MEMBER PAIR FREE 18 YRS AND UNDER LITTLE ONES & CHILDREN WELCOME

Guest Speaker: Kelly Sidoryk, local producer panel also to be included 

Topics: 

  • the main focus will be on grazing management, and we will have some "classroom," time, but we will spend most of the afternoon touring pastures and taking a hands-on approach to learning about grazing 
  • There will be a bit of a holistic management theme to the event, so we will also be talking about financial management and profitability (in relation to grazing), as well as the people side (working together, taking time for rest and relaxation and how to balance these things in) of running a farm/ranch. 

The event is FREE for attendees 18 and under, and families are welcome!  We would appreciate RSVPs at least 2 days before the event, so that we can plan numbers for lunch. 

This event will be a great opportunity for youth who are interested in learning about grazing and interested in being a beef producer in the future or pursuing a career in agriculture.
