Scott Guenthner’s journey from rodeo to rural

Heading for a warmer spot during the Alberta winter cold is what many make a regular journey. But Scott Guenthner chose to skip his usual winter hot spots this year, to stay at home on the ranch near Provost instead. Why?

It’s a cut that not only looks good on the grill, but it’s one that you can share with guests no matter the occasion.

Taking a closer look at Johne’s disease

Johne’s disease is a sneaky production-limiting disease that damages herd health. We introduced Johne’s in the November 2021 issue. A new digital risk-reward calculator has been developed to help beef producers predict the future spread of Johne’s in their herds, and compare costs and benefits of different management strategies.

Introducing agriculture’s Buddy Up persona

We’ve given our buddies help with processing cattle, or picked up parts for them because we were in town anyway, but how often do we take the time to ask how they’re really doing? Last year the Centre for Suicide Prevention (CSP) added a character to their ever-growing list of personas. This is Clay.  Clay was developed…

Since I joined ABP in November 2020, there has been a constant flurry of activity tackling an unprecedented number of issues.
