Cattlemen’s Conference Focuses on Risks, Opportunities

Cattlemen’s Conference Focuses on Risks, Opportunities
Cattle producers across the country face new challenges as the cattle market reaches new heights.

Even though feed and fertilizer are less expensive than in years past, the cost of many agricultural inputs is on the rise.

To help beef producers manage their operational costs in today’s fluctuating markets, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host its third annual Texoma Cattlemen’s Conference: “Rising Risk-Expanding Opportunities, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 27, at the Ardmore Convention Center. During the conference, regional and national industry leaders will focus on the rising risks and expanding opportunities for beef producers.

“Cattlemen are perhaps operating with greater exposure to associated risks,” said Hugh Aljoe, consultation program manager. “But higher risks usually mean there is potential for greater rewards. So where are the opportunities? What are the risks producers need to manage? How do producers do that successfully? We’ll answer those questions and more at this year’s Texoma Cattlemen’s Conference.”

Speakers include:

·         Roger Bernard, Informa Economics agriculture and trade policy analyst: Farm Policy Update and Implications, from Washington D.C.

·         Ted McCollum, Ph.D., professor and Texas AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist: Marketing Excess Forage in Favorable Years

·         Michele Peterson Murray, National Cattleman’s Beef Association executive director of integrated communications: Shaping Consumers’ Perceptions About Beef

·         Derrell Peel, Ph.D., Oklahoma State University professor of agricultural economics and marketing: Market Outlook for the Beef Industry

·         Dan Childs, Noble Foundation senior agricultural economist: Finding Opportunities in a Record Cattle Market

·         Deke Alkire and Jeri Donnell, Noble Foundation consultants, and Chuck Coffey, rancher,: Panel Discussion - Managing the Risks: Pasture, Livestock, and Finances and Markets

·         Ron Hays, Oklahoma Farm Report, moderator

Registration is $35 and includes lunch. For more information or to preregister, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Jackie Kelley at 580.224.6360.
