Each Graham School session consists of five days of intense classroom and "hands on" training in actual on-the-farm conditions. whether a student is new to the cattle business or a seasoned professional, the Graham School offers a diverse curriculum relevant in today's competitive and economically sensitive ranching climate.


“I highly recommend the Graham School for anyone involved in the cattle business. It is a tremendous experience and learning opportunity for cattlemen and women at any level of livestock production. The hands on training with the ability to work one on one with exceptional instructors is what I believe is the best part. It is also a great way to network and meet fellow producers from around the country. Frank is truly an asset to the cattle industry for his continued commitment to educating and helping so many cattlemen and women. Make plans to attend the Graham School, you will not be disappointed” - Jeremy R. (West Virginia) July 2022

I attended Graham School in August of 2019 and have nothing but praise for the program, instructors, techniques, and facilities. I had a real hands-on, not over-crowded, experience where I could put into action what we were taught. I was able to go home and put my learning to use by pregnancy testing my own cows and this spring – dabble in the AI process. I also learned many tips and tricks that I could put into my toolbox for later use on my own ranch.” – Heather, Wyoming

"Attending the Grahm School was an amazing experience, the hands on learning was second to none. Every instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the week. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the ultrasound portion of the class at the end of the week. I bought an ultrasound machine from the school and put it to use when I got home. Using the ultrasound I preg checked 1800 head this fall and was reassured when my uncle (who has preg checked for 30+ years) rechecked what I had called open and I hadn’t missed one. The skills I learned from the school will be financially beneficial for our operation. I highly recommend the Grahm School for anyone in the cattle industry." -Nate, Wyoming

The Graham School for Cattlemen is something I will NEVER FORGET! I AM STILL EXCITED! It was an intense week so packed with information I thought my might explode-long time since this old gal has been to school!

Meeting the other students was a highlight too, Folks in common, passionate about Ag and young folks wanting to learn more. I plan on sending my son and his fiancé in a year or so.

Again thanks so much for the incredible experience! Karen Hauge class of October 2015
