Field Day Focuses on Small-Scale Stocker Cattle Options

Fri, 08 May 2015 12:10:59 CDT

Field Day Focuses on Small-Scale Stocker Cattle Options The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Basic AG Livestock Management Field Day from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Friday, May 22, at the Noble Foundation McMillan Road Farm.

This field day will focus on stocker cattle enterprise options for small-scale producers and the strategic planning process of the Noble Foundation’s McMillan Road Farm.

“The success of any livestock enterprise is dependent on forage production, which is rooted in healthy soil,” said Clay Wright, livestock consultant. “Many times, a producer reverses the pyramid of livestock production and puts the emphasis solely on the animal. This seminar will provide producers the basic information on how these resources interact.”

This field day will also address cattle handling and pen design for small-scale producers, as well as prescribed burning, stocking rate and pasture management.

The Noble Foundation's Basic AG program is an educational program to benefit those new to agriculture. The series provides practical, foundational knowledge that can be used in everyday operations. "While the seminars target those just entering the agricultural industry, anyone can attend,” said Hugh Aljoe, Noble Foundation producer relations program manager. “The information gained can be applied to many agricultural production scenarios or situations."

The events offer information and provide new tools to achieve specific agriculture-related goals. Basic AG events frequently incorporate speakers from state and federal agricultural organizations as well as the occasional hands-on experience.

"The Noble Foundation's Basic AG program provides quality, timely information presented in a clear and concise format," Aljoe said. "Each event, including the upcoming workshop, offers attendees plenty of time to ask questions and visit with the experts. Each event holds the potential to immediately enhance a new producer's operation."

This workshop is offered at no charge, but preregistration is required. For more information or to preregister, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Maggie Scott at 580.224.6375.
