Cattle School Offers Key Information for New Producers
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host the 2012 Noble Foundation Basic Cattle School as a two-part series on Tuesday, April 24, and Wednesday, May 9, at the Noble Foundation Oswalt Road Ranch near Marietta, Okla., and the Red River Livestock Market in Overbrook, Okla., respectively.

During the Basic Cattle School, Noble Foundation agricultural consultants will provide information on several key elements of building and managing a healthy cow/calf production system.

"If you are new to the cattle business or considering owning cattle, this program is an excellent opportunity to learn the basics of cattle production," said Clay Wright, Noble Foundation rural life program manager. "We're going to focus on the best management practices and show new producers how to increase productivity and profitability."

The first part of the Basic Cattle School will kick off at 8:30 a.m., April 24, with an overview of the school and the cattle industry, followed by a demonstration on cattle handling and nutrition. There will also be discussions on herd health programs and best management practices, as well as how to select bulls and cows.

The second and final session will begin with a tour of the Red River Livestock Market and discussion of sale procedures and cattle shrinkage. Marketing and value-added programs will be discussed after the tour when participants return to the Oswalt Road Ranch.

This school costs $20 for each day, which includes lunch. For additional information or to register, please click here or call Tracy Cumbie at 580.224.6292.
