Back to Basics Field Days Planned by Oklahoma Beef Council

Mon, 09 Apr 2012 11:20:29 CDT

Back to Basics Field Days Planned by Oklahoma Beef Council Beef producers from across the state will have an opportunity to increase their bottom line at the “Back to Basics” Field Days scheduled for this spring. Hosted by the Oklahoma Beef Council through the beef checkoff program, the field days will focus on teaching producers the necessary tools to determine how culling cows at the proper time and retaining replacements can help maximize producers’ profitability.

Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Heather Buckmaster, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Beef Council, about these upcoming Field Days. Click on the LISTEN BAR below to hear that conversation.

The field days will be held at:

Pawnee Stockyards - April 20, 2012 (5:30 PM)

Hobart Stockyards - April 26, 2012 (8:30 AM)

Cherokee Sales Company - May 3, 2012 (8:30 AM)

Southern Oklahoma Livestock Auction, Ada - May 10, 2012 (8:30 AM)

Texhoma Livestock Auction - May 17, 2012 (8:30 AM)

“We will be taking a look back at the basics that can have an impact on producers’ bottom line,” said Jeff Jaronek, director of industry relations for the Oklahoma Beef Council. “We will hear from veterinarians, livestock specialist and livestock market owners on topics that can add value to their animals and the information shared can certainly help boost profits.”

Producers will be given an opportunity to discuss castration techniques, evaluate teeth wear to determine the age of cattle and experience other areas of Beef Quality Assurance (BQA). The field days have been approved for 4 hours of continuing education credits for veterinarians. “We continue to encourage beef producers to implement BQA practices in their herd management program,” Jaronek said. “It can open doors to new marketing opportunities for participating producers and help them become more competitive.”

Participants will be entered to win a Priefert chute courtesy of Priefert Ranch Equipment and Shawnee Feeds.

The meal for the field days is sponsored by Novartis Animal Health.
