Pasture and stored forages are critical resources in the cattle industry. An effective management plan requires realistic production goals, a clear understanding of forage production, effective grazing strategies and timely responses to forage availability and changing environmental conditions. Record keeping can support management decisions needed to effectively manage both pasture and stored forage. This webinar will discuss the record keeping methods used by three producers to manage their pastures and forages.

Ryan Boyd grew up on the farm, attended Forrest Elementary School and graduated from Elton Collegiate in 2001. After high school Ryan attended University of Manitoba and studied agronomy in the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences.
Upon graduating in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science (Agriculture) Ryan returned home to the farm and began farming full time. Continuous education is important to Ryan and he has since taken many courses including Ranching for Profit and Holistic Management and many other grazing, cattle, soil and crop seminars and workshops.
Ryan is currently an executive board member of the Manitoba Foarage and Grasslands Association and the Humesville Cemetery.
Ryan is passionate about all things farming and grateful for the opportunity to farm along side his wife Sarah and kids Piper and Bingham.
Jeremy Brown is an agrologist with Ducks Unlimited Canada, based in North Battleford. This involves working with ranchers and farmers to promote healthy grasslands as nesting habitat for waterfowl. What enhances the sustainability of grasslands benefits the agriculture industry, the landscape and wildlife.
He has a Bachelor of Agriculture from the University of Saskatchewan. Jeremy was raised on a grain and cattle farm near Cut Knife, Sask. He lives on the family homestead with his wife, Marla, and their two children. They operate a custom grazing business.
Steve Kenyon runs a custom grazing business in the Westlock, Alberta area under the name of Greener Pastures Ranching Ltd. He currently runs just over 1,400 head of livestock on 3,000 acres of leased land. By using extended grazing techniques, he is able to pasture cattle year-round. This is done by using a combination of intensive cell grazing, dormant season grazing, swath grazing, crop residue grazing and bale grazing. Steve has become well respected in the agriculture community for his business management and innovative ideas.
Steve has been teaching sustainable grazing management for more than 15 years and has been a keynote speaker at many conferences and seminars throughout Canada and the U.S. He is a writer for the Stockman Grass Farmer magazine and also for the Canadian Cattleman Magazine.
