Central Oklahoma Cattle Conference To be Held in Chandler

Fri, 30 Sep 2011 14:35:04 CDT

Central Oklahoma Cattle Conference To be Held in Chandler Cattle producers looking for management ideas that can improve the sustainability of their operations should register now to attend the Central Oklahoma Cattle Conference Oct. 13 in Chandler.

"Drought conditions are expected to continue next year, making recovery strategies relative to 2011 and marketing considerations for this year's drought and beyond of key importance to producers," said Cody Linker, Lincoln County Extension agricultural educator.

The 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Oct. 13 conference will take place at the Chandler American Legion Building. Registration at the door will begin at 8:30 a.m. Cost is $25 if pre-registering in advance and $35 at the door. To pre-register, contact the Lincoln County Extension Office at 405-258-0560.

"A sponsored meal is included in the registration fee, and so we ask participants to pre-register if possible as it aids in our planning and helps ensure that we have sufficient numbers of meals, refreshments and conference materials on hand," Linker said.

Conference sessions will focus on forage recovery strategies for 2012, livestock drought recovery and health issues, current and long-term cattle market considerations and drought-related management of livestock watering ponds. Sessions will be led by specialists and experts with Oklahoma State University's Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.

"We're also featuring a prescribed burn panel that will discuss both benefits and procedures," Linker said.

To get to the Chandler American Legion Building: Turn west off State Highway 18 onto 6th Street and drive down the hill to Tilghman Park. The building is located in the southwestern corner of the park.

Anyone seeking additional information about the Oct. 13 Central Oklahoma Cattle Conference in Chandler should contact Linker at 405-258-0560.
