The University of Arizona V Bar V Ranch headquartered in Rimrock will hold its annual Ranch Explorers Day, Saturday, August 24, at Mahan Park, a forest meadow on the ranch near Happy Jack, where the cowboys gather and wean the V Bar V Ranch calves every fall.

Ranch Explorers Day participants may drive to the site or catch a bus in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Sedona, Cottonwood, or Camp Verde. Transportation is included in the registration fee.

This year, ranch personnel will present "The V Bar V Ranch: Connecting Animal, Range, and Human Health."

The program will include a talk by Dr. John Marchello, from the UA Food Products and Safety Lab, on Food Safety - Past and Future, and a presentation by Dr. Peder Cuneo, from the University of Arizona Vet Diagnostic Laboratory, on Herd Health and the Arizona Livestock Incident Response Team (ALIRT). The V Bar V Range Management team will lead native plant walks and hands-on rangeland monitoring activities. A local horse trainer will demonstrate the stages of progressive horse training. And, the V Bar V Ranch Chuckwagon cook will show how the V Bar V beef lunch is barbecued in a pit and demonstrate how he makes his famous Dutch oven cobblers!

Cost to attend Ranch Explorers Day is $30 for adults and $15 for students, and includes lunch and the bus ride. Participants may also drive to the site.
