Nutrition, marketing highlight upcoming cattle seminar
ARDMORE, Okla. — Fall brings about the need to consider key factors for preparing cows and calves for winter in the Southern Great Plains.
To provide regional livestock producers with the information to make better, more informed decisions, the Noble Research Institute will host a Fall Cattle Seminar from 1-4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 29, at the Ardmore Convention Center, located at 2401 N Rockford Road in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
"Fall is a busy time of year when lots of decisions have to be made by cow-calf producers," said Ryon Walker, Ph.D., Noble Research Institute livestock consultant. "As the cattle market transitions down, evaluating costs of certain practices and their potential returns becomes even more important. We will provide producers with information to help them make wise business decisions regarding their operations this fall and winter."
This seminar will focus on issues key to the process: body condition scoring; deworming, weaning and winter supplementation strategies; and the fall market outlook.
There is no registration fee for the seminar, but preregistration is encouraged. To register, please visit noble.org/events, or contact Danielle Pacifico at 580-224-6376 or Trisha DeLozier at 580-224-6377.
The Integrity Beef Alliance program summer meeting will directly follow the seminar. This meeting is open to nonmembers. The registration fee for nonmembers is $20. Each alliance member may bring two guests free of charge. Each additional guest after the two will be charged the nonmember registration fee.
