2021 Advanced Grazing School Ranching for Profit
The Virginia Forage and Grassland Council has partnered with the American Farmland Trust and the Mountains to the Bay Grazing Alliance to bring the professional Ranching for Profit Workshops to the heart of Virginia. Ranching for Profit workshops were first taught in the US by Stan Parsons in 1983. Since that time thousands of ranchers have participated in these professional workshops integrating economics into the development and proper management of grazing systems in the US, South Africa and Australia. This is truly an amazing opportunity for Virginia producers to learn from cattleman, rancher, instructor and CEO of the Ranch Management Consultants, Dallas Mount, in a 2-day Ranching for Profit Workshop. If you register and attend both days, you get a real-world value of nearly $1,000 for only $150. Don’t miss this opportunity. It is limited to the first 100 participants to register. This will be hosted at Renback Farm just a few miles south of the town of Madison, VA. All the agenda topics and registration details are in the linked brochure and on the website. If you have further questions about the program call Jacob Gilley at 540-219-5015.
Dallas Mount will be the professional instructor at this 2-day advanced workshop. Dallas has sat at hundreds of kitchen tables and delivered workshops to thousands of ranchers across the US, Canada, and Australia to help them improve the profitability and overall health of their business. He has hands-on experience working in cow-calf, yearling, feedlot and hay enterprises. Dallas began teaching the Ranching for Profit School in 2012 and established himself as an elite instructor. Dallas, his wife and two teenage children own and manage a cell-grazing operation near Wheatland, WY. In 2019 he purchased Ranch Management Consultants from Dave and Kathy Pratt. He currently serves as CEO now leading the ranching for profit school and the Executive Link Program creating profitable businesses, with healthy land and happy families.
