OSU Animal Science Dept. Hits the Road to Visit the Ranches of SW Oklahoma, and You're Invited!Thu, 18 May 2017 12:06:03 CDT
The Animal Science Department at Oklahoma State University is going on the road, and inviting anyone interested in the beef and cattle industry to tag along. The Animal Science Road Trip “Ranchin’ Oklahoma,” will take place May 31 to June 1, 2017, making stops at five different ranching operations in and around the greater Lawton area. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays spoke briefly with one of the event organizers from the department, Gant Mourer, about the trip’s details.

“We’re going to see some very forward thinking ranches, in terms of profitability and management on those ranches,” Mourer said. “Now, we don’t have a lot of stops and that’s by design - so, we can spend some really high-quality time with those producers, looking at some management programs and then leisurely taking our time just going a few miles away to the next ranch and doing the same thing.”
The tour will feature visits at Ballou Cattle Company, Flether; MCS Cattle Company, Elgin; Glover Cattle Company, Elgin; Coyote Hills Ranch, Chattanooga; and Collins Cattle, Frederick.
