Oklahoma Producers Invited to Register Now for the Upcoming 2018 Master Cattleman Ranch Tour

Tue, 01 May 2018 10:07:06 CDT

Oklahoma Producers Invited to Register Now for the Upcoming 2018 Master Cattleman Ranch Tour Dr. David Lalman, Oklahoma State University Extension Beef Specialist, joined colleauges Dr. Derrell Peel and Glenn Selk in this week's edition of the Cow/Calf Corner newsletter to invite producers to sign up for the 2018 Master Cattleman Ranch Tour on May 30 and 31. Read his full article below for more details on this year's tour and how to register.



"Beef cattle producers in Oklahoma will have the opportunity to learn first-hand more about their industry by attending the 2018 Master Cattleman Ranch Tour on May 30 and 31. Any cattle producer may register and learn from some of the stateís master cattlemen and cattlewomen. The cost of the tour is only $30 and is presented by OSU Animal Science Department and the Carter/Jefferson County OSU Extension Offices..



"This is a unique opportunity to see some very progressive, scenic, and historic beef cattle ranches of south-central Oklahoma. You will appreciate the environmental and ecological diversity that will be on display from ranch-to-ranch. Although the focus is on beef cattle production, including cow/calf, stocker, purebred seedstock, and backgrounding operations, it will also be an opportunity to see, up close and personal, some of the issues in this region of the state regarding invasive species (Eastern red cedar), groundwater/surface water resources (Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer), and some very challenging landscape to implement control measures.



"The ranches range in size from about 10,000 to 35,000 acres. There will be some interesting contrasts of vertical and horizontal integration, genetic selection, stocker health management, fall vs. spring calving seasons, winter feeding strategies, native range management, and the use of Rx fire to enhance animal performance, as well as controlling brush.



"Please find the linked flier on the upcoming Master Cattleman Ranch Tour, presented by the OSU Animal Science Department and the Carter/Jefferson County OSU Extension Offices. For details about the seven ranches to be visited and key topics discussed, click on the link below to a flier that gives more important information about the tour: http://beefextension.com/temp_files/2018MasterCattlemanRanchTour.pdf. In addition, there is an online registration link, that it will be limited to the first 100 registrants. Registration Link: http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/marketplace. Register now, donít delay."
