*Upcoming Webinar* Grazing Game Plan: How to Develop a Grazing Plan- February 9
Grazing is an essential part of raising cattle on the Canadian landscape. Whether you have been managing cattle on grass for years or are just starting, it is important to have a plan. A grazing plan matches animal numbers to predicted forage yields to help balance supply and demand. Ideally, a grazing plan is in place before cattle are turned out. An important first step in developing a plan includes defining goals and objectives for the entire grazing operation. This webinar will cover the basics of developing a grazing plan.
Register for our upcoming webinar on February 9th and hear from two industry experts from western and eastern regions of Canada as well as a producer who will be sharing their practical perspective. The speakers will provide insight and answer your questions about developing and executing a grazing plan that meets your short- and long-term goals.

Originally from a sheep ranch in Montana, Bluesette lives and works on the B-C Ranch, a third-generation cattle ranch near Meadow Lake, SK with her husband, Mark, and their two boys, Andrew and Birch. The ranch currently is a 700-head cow/calf and long-yearling operation that includes an extra-age heifer enterprise. Bluesette has a passion for holistic management and is now a HM Certified Educator through Holistic Management International. Other places that hold her passions are her no-till garden adventures, chemistry and magic in the kitchen and advocating for the rights of all individuals especially those with intellectual exceptionalities, where she spends much of her free time volunteering. Holistic Management practices can be seen as a common thread through all of her work. If you don’t find her in any of those places, she is likely out trying to make sense of the world while running.
