Register Now to Attend 2016 Eastern Oklahoma Beef Summit in McAlesterFri, 22 Jan 2016 11:29:20 CST
Cattle producers seeking ways to better manage their operations in ever more challenging business conditions should register now to attend the April 8 Eastern Oklahoma Beef Cattle Summit in McAlester.
The theme for this summit is “Perceptions in Agriculture”. One topic among others that will be addressed is buying versus raising replacement heifers. “The record prices being seen in the last
couple of years should send signals to closely evaluate herd expansion specifically in those replacement females.”
“Tough decisions will likely have to be made; however, ensuring that your operation is profitable requires effectively handling a host of production and economic considerations,” said J.J. Jones
OSU SE Area Agriculture Economics Specialist.
This year, the 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. summit will take place at the Southeast 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 April 1, 2016 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.
Anyone seeking additional information about the April 8 Beef Summit should visit their Local County Extension Office.
