CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Stock Growers Association is joining an effort to promote a value-added cattle production marketing program.

The Wyoming Premium Heifer program began in 2012 as a joint venture between the Wyoming Business Council’s Agribusiness Division and the University of Wyoming’s Animal Science Department.

The program is designed to develop and market bred and replacement heifer calves certified under a standard set of guidelines that could demand a higher price per head at market.

Program manager John Henn says the inclusion of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association underscores the program’s effectiveness and will help promote it to more producers in the state.

Jim Magagna, of the Stock Growers Association, says the organization looks forward to highlighting the program and informing its membership about the opportunities the program offers.
