Texas: Spring Beef Cattle Workshop slated for May 16

April 25, 2014

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Agriculture and Natural Resource Committee for Bandera County will present the "Spring Beef Cattle Workshop" from 3-6 p.m. May 16 in Bandera, Texas.

The program will begin at the Mansfield Park Recreation Center, 2886 Highway 16 North, and conclude at the Flying A Ranch.

"With low inventory numbers and high cattle prices, there appears to be a renewed interest in beef production," said Sam Womble, AgriLife Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources, Bandera County. "More and more landowners are looking at cattle as a management tool to enhance their production system."

Womble said program presentations will include: Basic Considerations for Getting Started in the Cattle Business, Nutrition 101, Facilities and Cattle Handling, and Niche Markets.

Speakers will include Dr. Rick Machen, AgriLife Extension livestock specialist, Uvalde, and Keith Lake and Brent Trussell, both wildlife biologists at the Flying A Ranch.

Womble said the program will also feature hands-on demonstrations.

The cost is $15 per person and includes refreshments. To register, contact the AgriLife Extension office in Bandera County at 830-796-7755 by May 9.
