Cultivating Cattlewomen Event a Success at the Stockyards

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 16:12:52 CDT

Cultivating Cattlewomen Event a Success at the Stockyards The First-Ever Cultivating Cattlewmen Event kicked off this weekend at the Stockyards with a fantastic array of events and speakers.

The event covered Trailer Handling, Vaccine handling, Storage and Use, and wrapped up with lunch in the Stockyards and a tour of the stockyards. Associate Farm Director KC Sheperd caught up with Oklahoma Cattlewomen President Cheyenne Sparks at the event, and she said it has been something she has been planning for the past two years, "To see it come to fruition, and to see it go so smoothly, and to have so many engaging participants attend. I am just overjoyed."

OSU's Dr. Rosslyn Biggs and Tammy Didlot led the demonstrations for trailer backing, and Sparks said it was important for women to feel more confident about their skills, "These might be things that we have done for years, but we might need a refresher. Or something we were never truly taught how to do it without getting yelled at while we were learning. So now we are having the ability come together, and it's a nice place to gain that confidence."

Sparks said due to the success of this event, the Cattlewomen are already planning something for the Spring, "We have already seen such success with this that we are planning on doing a spring event back here at the stockyards with different learning, so if you've already come to this one, you can come back and we will look family transitions, nutrition, we are looking at things that are very pertinent to our industry at the moment."
