Sustainability Highlights Noble Foundation Cattle Seminar

As fall approaches, beef cattle producers in the Southern Great Plains are preparing to wean calves and developing plans to get the cow herd through the winter.


To provide regional livestock producers with the information to make better, more informed decisions, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Fall Cattle Seminar from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 26, at the Noble Foundation Kruse Auditorium.


“Cattle producers in the Southern Great Plains have many reasons to be optimistic,” said Deke Alkire, Ph.D., Noble Foundation livestock consultant, “such as spring rains, record cattle prices and lower feed prices. This seminar will provide cattle producers with the information to capture as much profit as possible.”


This seminar will focus on issues that are key to the process: supplementation strategies for weaned calves and wintering cows, developing replacement heifers and marketing considerations based on price outlook. Dr. David Lalman, Oklahoma State University professor, will discuss increasing efficiencies of the cow herd. A producer panel will conclude the seminar discussing how they are preparing now for the winter


While there is no registration fee, preregistration is encouraged. Click Here to register for this seminar or contact Jackie Kelley at 580.224.6360.
