Fall Cattle Seminar Examines Livestock Key Decisions to be Made During Drought

Fall Cattle Seminar Examines Livestock Key Decisions to be Made During Drought
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Fall Cattle Seminar to assist regional livestock producers in answering the many questions associated with forage use and management during drought.

The workshop will take place from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, at the Noble Foundation Kruse Auditorium (2510 Sam Noble Parkway in Ardmore, Okla.). During the seminar, Noble Foundation consultants will discuss options for increasing forage production and management practices that will increase forage utilization, such as limited access and strip grazing. Other key topics set to be covered are maintaining fall and winter nutrition with limited forage, the market outlook, and drought insurance.

“Drought is a game changer,” said Deke Alkire, Ph.D., Noble Foundation livestock consultant. “This seminar is designed to provide livestock producers the information they need to make critical management decisions during drought conditions that will impact the viability and sustainability of their operation.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, includes dinner at 6 p.m., courtesy of co-sponsors Hargrove Insurance, Silveus Insurance Group, and Hutchings Crop Insurance. After dinner, an area rancher will share his experiences managing through the recent drought years, which will lead to a weather outlook. There will be ample time after the program to visit with Noble Foundation consultants, as well as representatives of each insurance company so they can explain how drought insurance programs for pasture, hay and forage can work for a producer.

“Successfully implementing appropriate drought strategies can mitigate the impact,” Alkire said. “Drought insurance for pasture and hay can be part of the solution, and we are fortunate to have representatives of several companies co-hosting the event and available to answer these timely insurance questions.”

While there is no registration fee, preregistration is encouraged. To register for this seminar, contact Tracy Cumbie at 580.224.6292 or register online by clicking here.
