A new generation of young ranchers gathered to learn about ranch management from University of Wyoming Extension educators at the Broadbent Ranch near Evanston in late May.

“Anything educational I think is important, and we want to support that,” said Vance Broadbent, owner of the Broadbent Ranch. “I thought it was a good cause and a good program. We wanted to help support it in any way that we could.”

Eleven students from Wyoming, Colorado and Utah were taught on topics in meat science, animal science, economics, ranch recreation and range management. Students were placed on teams that presented a ranch management business plan to a panel of extension educators and Broadbent at the end of the week.

“We had the perfect teams put together,” said Hudson Hill, UW extension educator. “We brought in the perfect specialists to enhance the experience, and we really had it in the perfect place. We had a lot of support from the landowners.”
