Upcoming Seminar Focuses on Improving Stocker OperationsWed, 19 Jun 2013 16:32:12 CDT
Productive winter pasture can be a valuable asset, but can also be expensive to establish and grow.
To help stocker producers start their winter pasture out right, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Winter Pasture and Stocker Cattle Seminar from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, July 16, at the Southern Oklahoma Technology Center located at 2610 Sam Noble Parkway in Ardmore, Okla.
During the seminar, Noble Foundation agricultural consultants will provide information about winter pasture establishment and fertility, forage types and selection, and seed quality testing. Noble Foundation agricultural researchers will provide an update on the latest research using rising plate meter technology in application measuring forage production of winter pasture and subsequent stocking.
A producer panel of three successful stocker operators will conclude the seminar, discussing their receiving protocol and winter establishment techniques.
"Now is the time to make plans for winter pasture production and take action on several management issues," said James Locke, Noble Foundation soils and crops consultant. "This seminar will address the key issues that ultimately affect profitability for producers and provide attendees with information that could impact their own operations."
There is no registration fee, but preregistration is requested. For more information or to register, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Jackie Kelley at 580.224.6360.
