Cattle producers seeking ways to better manage their operations in ever more challenging business conditions can register now to attend the April 4 Eastern Oklahoma Beef Cattle Summit in McAlester.
The theme for this summit is Cattle Health Management. One topic among others that will be addressed is the 2014 Beef Cattle Outlook. "The inventory of beef replacement heifers is currently trending upward indicating expansion," OSU's Derrell Peel said. "This still is a low percentage rate, however in comparison over the last 20 years."
This year, the 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. summit will take place at the South East Oklahoma Expo Center, located at 4500 W Hwy 270 McAlester. Registration is $10 per participant, which covers the cost of materials, refreshments and lunch.
Registration forms are available at all local county Extension offices with a registration deadline of March 19, 2013 due to:
Pittsburg County Extension Office
707 West Electric
McAlester, OK 74501-5058
"The summit has become one of the premier single-day beef events in the area," Brian Freking OSU SE Area Livestock Specialist said. "A truly excellent trade show and door prizes are traditions, adding to the opportunity of participants to learn from and interact with experts who will be leading sessions about cutting-edge beef topics."
Summit participants also will receive insights and updates from the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association and Oklahoma Beef Council.
"One of the greatest advantages of participating is the opportunity to speak with other beef producers who are in situations similar to your own, and who may have developed solutions that could prove useful in your own operation," Freking said.
Additional information about the March 26 Beef Summit is available at all local county extension offices.
