Texoma Cattlemen's Conference Addresses Industry Issues

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 14:21:33 CDT

Texoma Cattlemen’s Conference Addresses Industry Issues All phases of the cattle industry are experiencing record high markets. Many cow-calf producers are reaping unprecedented prosperity. Producers will continue to face challenges and opportunities but at a new and higher level.

To help beef producers successfully manage their livestock operations during these record markets, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host its fourth annual Texoma Cattlemen's Conference: Prosperity, Volatility and Sustainability, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, March 21, at the Ardmore Convention Center. During the conference, regional and national industry leaders will closely examine some of the major interests and issues facing the industry: beef sustainability, ag credit, risk management and the cattle outlook.

"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:

-- Cameron Bruett, JBS USA Holdings Inc. chief sustainability officer: The Retailers' Perspective of Sustainability

-- Dan Childs, Noble Foundation senior agricultural economist: Situation and Outlook for Ag Credit

-- Mike Sands, Ph.D., Informa Economics vice president and beef production analyst: Cattle Market Outlook

-- Kim Stackhouse-Lawson, Ph.D., National Cattleman's Beef Association director of sustainability research: The Beef Industry Perspective of Sustainability

-- Brandon Willis, USDA Risk Management Agency administrator: Risk Management Options

-- Jan Lee, southeast Oklahoma rancher; Glenn Rogers, D.V.M, north Texas rancher; Chuck Coffey, southern Oklahoma rancher: Producer Perspective and Panel Discussion

-- Ron Hays, Oklahoma Farm Report, moderator

Texoma Cattlemen's Conference is one of the premier one-day educational events in the Southern Great Plains. Registration and trade show open at 8 a.m. Registration is $40 and includes a steak lunch. For more information or to preregister, click here or contact Maggie Scott at 580.224.6375.
