Central Oklahoma Cattle Conference set for Chandler


Producers looking to maintain a productive forage base and match it to the appropriate cattle should register now to attend the 2009 Central Oklahoma Cattle Conference on Oct. 29 in Chandler.

"This program will appeal to all ranchers in the region," said Mick Jones, Lincoln County Extension director and agricultural educator. "Regardless of whether you run a large or small operation, the techniques will work. Adding value to livestock is adding value to livestock."

The conference will take place at the Lincoln County Agri-Civic Center, located on the county fairgrounds. The program will be introduced by Ron Hays of the Oklahoma Farm Report radio network.

Bob Woods, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension area plant and soil science specialist, will lead a session on managing the forage base on a central Oklahoma farm or ranch.

Doug McKinney, OSU beef cattle value enhancement specialist, will provide insights regarding opportunities to add value to the sale price of calves.

Bob Kropp, OSU professor of animal science, will provide the latest science-based information on ways to match cows to a ranch's operational goals and objectives.

Derrell Peel, OSU Cooperative Extension livestock marketing specialist, will provide analysis on developing cattle markets, especially calf and cull cow markets.

There will also be a trade show at the conference showcasing the latest products from major agricultural suppliers.

Participants are asked to pre-register no later than Oct. 22 by contacting the Lincoln County Extension Office at 405-258-0560, or by stopping by any OSU Cooperative Extension county office.

The biennial conference is sponsored by the Lincoln County Cattle Producers' Association and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service.
