Celebrate Agriculture Month: Chat with a rancher about raising cattle
October 13 @ 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Interested in learning more about life on a for-real cattle ranch? Join Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan online on October 13 for a chance to see a modern rancher at work.
Over the past year, Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan has been working with Erika Stewart, a rancher from Morse, Saskatchewan, to produce an online series called ‘A Year in the Life on Pine Ranch’ that is shared on Canadian Food Focus. Each month, Erika shares a behind-the-scenes look at ranching life, posting videos that help explain things like weaning, calving, vaccination…even how ranchers use ear tags and set up solar-powered water troughs.
Erika is a third-generation rancher and also the coordinator for the Verified Beef Production+ program in Saskatchewan. “I love this life and this industry,” Erika says. “I’m very passionate about it and I want to share this, give some insight into our lives as ranchers and hopefully answer questions about what actually happens on a cattle ranch in western Canada.”
At 1:00 PM CST on Wednesday, October 13, Erika will share video highlights from her ranch over the past year, then Clinton Monchuk, Farm & Food Care’s Executive Director, will host a Q&A session for participants to ask Erika about life as a rancher.
Join us! This is a great way to get involved in Agriculture Month, which takes place every October in Saskatchewan.
