AgriLife Hosting Beef Cattle Seminar; RSVP Deadline Sept 20th

September 8, 2017 (Registration Form) - Shelby County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office is hosting a Beef Cattle Seminar, Monday, September 25th, 2017 starting at 6:00PM.

As we leave summer and enter fall producers often ask, “What’s the best breed of bull?” Dr. Jason Cleere, Beef Cattle Specialist, from Texas A&M will be the featured speaker. Dr. Cleere will be discussing bull selection utilizing different methods to make the best choice for your operation including EPD’s, terminal vs. maternal, phenotype (the way the bull looks) and cost. He will also discuss how blending these selection criteria can aid you in your purchasing process.

Feeding our cows is also a hot topic going into winter. We have been blessed with moisture most of the summer and our cows are in great shape. Dr. Cleere will be discussing feeding strategies and how to provide the proper nutrition for your cattle and keep it as cost effective as possible. The program will provide 1.5 Beef Quality Assurance CEU hours and will be held at the new Shelby County Extension office located at 266 Nacogdoches St., Center, TX 75935.

Link Charolais will be sponsoring the program, meal and providing some excellent door prizes. The pre-registration cost is $10.00 and registration at the door is $20.00.
