Stocker Receiving Management Conference set for Jan. 25



Cattle producers interested in learning about stocker health and nutrition management should mark their calendars for the Stocker Receiving Management Conference.

The conference will take place Jan. 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Chisholm Trail Pavilion on the Garfield County Fairgrounds, 111 W. Purdue, Enid.

Cost is $20 and attendees are asked to pre-register to allow for an accurate meal count. To register contact Greg Highfill at 580-237-7677 or e-mail greg.highfill@okstate.edu.

Highfill, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension area livestock specialist, said the conference will discuss important details when processing stocker calves, key steps for receiving success, trends in treatment and diagnosis from 2010, innovations from progressive operations, making animal welfare a key part of your operation, nutrition management, impact of implanting on performance of wheat and pasture stocker cattle and carcass merit and receiving nutrition basics for lightweight stocker calves.

"This conference offers a variety of topics for producers and the speakers bring a lot of knowledge to the conference," Highfill said. "I believe this conference will present participants with great information they can take back and apply to their own operation."

Speakers include Gerald Horn, OSU beef cattle nutrition management specialist; Dan Thompson, Kansas State University Beef Cattle Institute director; Clint Krehbiel, OSU ruminant nutrition specialist; and Michael Nichols, Pfizer Animal Health.
