Stockmanship Expert Dr. Noffsinger to be Featured at Upcoming OSU Extension Cattle Conference

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:15:37 CDT

International cattle handling and stockmanship expert Dr. Tom Noffsinger will headline a slate of speakers at the Merck Animal Health and Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension Cattle Conference set for this summer.

Free and open to the public, the conference will be 1-7 p.m., July 16 at the Grady County Fairgrounds and Event Center, 500 East Choctow, in Chickasha. Dinner will be provided in part by the Beef Check Off and The Oklahoma Beef Quality Assurance Program.

"This is the first time we've offered this conference," said Gant Mourer, OSU beef enhancement specialist. "This event is for anyone who is interested in increasing the efficiency of their operation while cutting down on the stress on both their cattle and themselves."

Dr. Noffsinger will discuss low-stress cattle handling and stockmanship as well as offer a live cattle demonstration.

A past president and the 2001 consultant of the year for the Academy of Veterinary Consultants, Dr. Noffsinger specializes in independent feedlot and production animal consultation, facility design and stockmanship.

With additional expertise in bovine respiratory disease management and lameness prevention, he has presented at conferences across the nation as well as in Australia, Spain and Canada.

Other topics covered during the conference include the Beef Quality Assurance program and optimizing cow-calf and stocker profits.

To RSVP for the conference, call 405-744-6060 or email Mourer at gantm@okstate.edu by July 11.
