Bringing education straight to the ranch

The seven most expensive words in the cattle business are: “We have always done it that way.”

What started as a desire for more community and education with peers in the agriculture industry quickly grew into a passion to take action for Karoline Rose, owner of KRose Company. Rose understands how hard it is to leave the ranch for educational opportunities – therefore Cattleman U was born.

“Cattleman U is an educational platform and community for the next generation of producers or people who want to raise livestock or crops in the near future. So many of this generation are working their operation full time and aren’t able to get away for conferences. There is a need for education that is easily accessible on an as-you-get-to-it basis,” Rose said. “It is also a platform for current producers to learn new strategies anywhere they are and hopefully trim their budget.”

The online membership allows members to access expert advice and pre-recorded trainings presented by well-known speakers from respected organizations. Monthly sessions include topics such as forage and pasture management, ag policy and business development, seedstock and commercial marketing techniques, farm-to-table and consumer marketing, nutrition, genetics and breeding. It also has a free classifieds page where members can post items for sale or advertise their business. Members receive access to industry discounts for bulls, semen, eartags, vaccines and more. One of the biggest advantages Cattleman U offers is a community where members can network and access resources. 

There are plenty of flexible options for everyone wanting to sign up for Cattleman U, with six-month and yearly membership options. The waitlist for the program has already opened and will close on May 31. Members who sign up on the waitlist will receive first access to an in-person event. Enrollment will be available to the general public June 1 through June 6. Learn more and join the waitlist at the Cattleman U website.  end mark
