Sedalia, Colorado. September 6, 2017. Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation announced today it will proudly host a stockmanship clinic on Saturday, November 4th at the Douglas County Event Center featuring the most widely respected experts on humane cattle handling techniques, clinician, Curt Pate and CSU professor, Temple Grandin, Ph.D -- in a rare public appearance.
Dr. Grandin is a world-renowned animal behavior pioneer and Mr. Pate is one of America’s premiere horsemen and sought-after stockmanship experts.
In a smaller setting at the fairgrounds’ Indoor Arena, at 500 Fairgrounds Drive in Castle Rock, the morning will open with registration and coffee at 8:30 a.m. The clinic will begin at 9:00 a.m. Attendees will learn new skills or enhance their knowledge of the benefits of humane cattle handling. Time to visit with popular vendors and ranching industry colleagues is built into the half-day session. A hearty western style lunch with Dr. Grandin and Curt Pate is included in the admission price. Advance reservations are now available at a modest $35 per person by visiting CherokeeRanch.org www.cherokeeranch.org/clinic.
We invite you to attend this unique opportunity and for our industry partners, a limited number of event sponsorships are available. These will help Cherokee Ranch achieve its goal of building a Temple Grandin Cattle Handing System at the historic Cherokee Ranch Headquarters as a part of a long-term vision protecting the ranch in perpetuity by implementing an exemplary conservation plan for land, water and wildlife resources in association with the USDA – Natural Resources Conservation Service along with our effort to institute more humane cattle handling methods by implementing Dr. Grandin’s practices.
Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation (CRCF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit science, culture and ranching institution established by Mildred Montague Genevieve (Tweet) Kimball in 1996 to preserve the cultural heritage of three early Douglas County homesteads and her home, a Scottish-style Castle built by Burnham Hoyt in 1926. Placed on the National Register for Historic Places in 1994, she preserved the historic district, including the Castle as a house museum featuring extensive fine art and antiques as a permanent cultural resource for the community. Protected by a conservation easement in perpetuity, CRCF offers nature and science programs and serves as a sanctuary for native wildlife and the herd of Santa Gertrudis cattle which Ms. Kimball was the first to introduce to Colorado. 75 acres are reserved for future educational and cultural facilities.
" the environment animals live in should activate their positive emotions as much as possible, and not activate their negative emotions any more than necessary. If we get the animal's emotions rights, we will have fewer problem behaviors” – Temple Grandin
