Upcoming Noble Foundation Seminar On Improving Stocker OperationsWed, 25 Jun 2014 15:12:11 CDT
Productive winter pasture can be an invaluable asset for agricultural producers. It 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 Stocker Seminar from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, July 15, at the Southern Oklahoma Technology Center located at 2610 Sam Noble Parkway in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
During the seminar, Noble Foundation agricultural consultants will detail three main areas: best management practices for winter pasture establishment and grazing; economic projections for the cattle market and value of gain this fall; and Noble Foundation research and emerging technologies.
"Even though summer is just now upon us, now is the time to make plans for winter pasture production and take action on these critical management issues," said Hugh Aljoe, Noble Foundation consultation manager. "This seminar will address the key issues that ultimately affect profitability for producers."
The seminar will conclude with a couple of successful stocker operators discussing their marketing and risk management strategies with fall purchased or retained calves.
