2014 Southern Alberta Grazing School

This summer the Southern Alberta Grazing School for Women will be held in the Pincher Creek area. Ranching women in the southwest part of the province have been stalwart supporters of the grazing school with some of them attending all ten years that it's been held!

We are back where it all started –the very first school was held at the Bloomin’ Inn Bed & Breakfast and they are hosting us once again.

We look forward to seeing you there!
