Newly Revised OSU Beef Cattle Manual a Great Gift

Mooooove over, Christmas presents; the greatest gift for that special cattle producer might just be the newly revised Oklahoma State University Beef Cattle Manual.

“It’s a comprehensive resource of the latest research-based information for beef cattle producers, Extension professionals, veterinarians and others in the industry, and is especially important for those participating in the OSU Master Cattleman Program,” said Dave Lalman, OSU professor of beef cattle production systems. “The new edition contains a number of revisions and updated chapters.”

Cost is $25 plus shipping upon request through local OSU Cooperative Extension county offices, or orders can be placed online at http://www.agecon.okstate.edu/cattleman/order.asp and at https://secure.touchnet.com/C20271_ustores/web/store_main.jsp?STOREID=68.

The original manual was a concise resource for information on beef cattle production and management, including nutrition, reproduction, animal health, genetics and the design of cattle-working facilities.

“More recent versions of the manual added chapters addressing economics, marketing and risk management, business planning and tax considerations, leasing arrangements, enterprise performance analysis, livestock insurance, forage production, grazing management, drought management, beef quality assurance, waste management and biosecurity,” said Damona Doye, OSU Cooperative Extension farm management specialist.

Contributors to the manual include faculty and staff with the OSU Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, OSU Cooperative Extension area specialists and agricultural professionals with the Noble Foundation, and USDA's Risk Management Agency.

Additional information about ordering the OSU Beef Cattle Manual is available by contacting Kareta Casey at 405-744-9836.
