Cattle Trails Cow-Calf Conference Set for Jan. 6

Thu, 22 Dec 2011 11:35:20 CST

Cattle Trails Cow-Calf Conference Set for Jan. 6 Cattle producers looking to pick up the latest science-based updates on cow-calf management practices should register now to attend the Jan. 6 Cattle Trails Cow-Calf Conference in Wichita Falls, Texas.

The conference is a collaborative effort between the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service and Texas AgriLife Extension Service. Its purpose is to help cattle owners and operators drive their animals to profit.

"The historic drought of 2011 has placed an even greater emphasis than normal on the ability of cattle producers to make the best production and economic decisions possible for their specific operations, and that will be a particular focus of the conference," said Bob LeValley, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension area livestock specialist.

The 2012 conference will take place at the Multi-Purpose Events Center, located at 1000 5th St. in Wichita Falls. The conference will begin at 8:15 a.m. and finish at approximately 2 p.m. Cost is $25 per participant, which will include a luncheon meal, refreshment breaks and proceedings of the topics discussed at the conference.

To register, producers should contact their local Cooperative Extension county office. Anyone seeking additional information should contact LeValley through the Southwest Area OSU Cooperative Extension Office in Duncan at 580-255-0546.

"Although pre-registration is not required, we ask that participants do so if possible as it greatly aids in our ability to ensure sufficient numbers of meals, refreshments and conference materials are on hand," LeValley said.

Conference topics will include sessions on the short- and long-term weather outlook for the region, the effects of the 2011 drought on cow-calf herds, reinvesting in the cattle operation after major herd liquidation and its potential tax consequences, pasture and range management considerations, a look at cow size versus maintenance costs and general considerations for repopulating a cow herd.

Sessions will be led by KFDX Meteorologist Bryan Rupp and experts from OSU's Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and Texas A&M University.
