Field Day: Growing Your Herd Locally – genetics, traits, and characteristics for local beef production
Attend this field day to hear from local farmer and rancher Forest McCormack about his experiences growing and raising his beef herd through the last decade. Forest will draw on his local knowledge about desirable traits for breeding, size, resilience and animal health. We will cover important topics such as local resources to support animal health, and animal husbandry which will be well suited to new farmers and small scale beef producers in the Kootenay and Boundary region.
