Wyoming agriculture session includes Lockhart Cattle Co. tour
A rangeland and local agriculture session featuring a tour of the Lockhart Cattle Co. is Saturday, April 30, near Jackson Hole, Wyo.
The tour has a limit of 30, said Glenn Owings, University of Wyoming Extension educator.
Topics include rangeland ecosystems, ranch operation basics in Wyoming and ranching culture, landscape values and local food production.
A presentation will be from 10-11 a.m. at the Teton County extension office, 255 W. Deloney, followed by the Lockhart tour from 11:15 a.m. to noon.
There is no cost to attend, but registration is required, said Owings. Contact Owings at (307) 367-4380 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
“The event will go on rain or shine,” he said. “Bring a warm jacket and boots for the ranch tour. It will likely be muddy. Transportation from the classroom to the ranch is not provided.”
In addition to UW Extension, sponsors are the Lockhart Cattle Co. and the Teton Conservation District.
