Only one more week to register for the 2012 Ladies Livestock Lessons. We've still got a few spaces available, so register now to save yourself a seat! Our field sites have been selected for the DAY 2 outdoor sessions and we'll be visiting Ghostpine Creek, just south of Pine Lake. You'll get your boots dirty learning about Cowgirl Range and Riparian Managment and you'll also get to try your hands at some fencing techniques. Have you got a trouble spot on a creek, or do you wish you had more willows to keep your streambank in place? We'll be trying out some bioengineering techniques using native, locally collected willow cuttings that you can try at home. Root, shoot and grow! Don't forget about our session with Les Burwash on Working Ranch Horse Nutrition. And you asked for it last year, more on Edible Plants! We're looking forward to it, and look forward to meeting all of you, and seeing some familiar faces from previous years!
