Oklahoma

Maintaining a productive forage base and then matching cattle type and numbers to available forage will be the focus of the Jan. 25 Central Oklahoma Cattle Conference in Stillwater.

"Successful and long-lasting cattle operations in central Oklahoma are those that maintain efficiency during periods of volatile input costs and extreme weather conditions, with wise use of pasture forages being the foundation," said Nathan Anderson, Payne County Extension director and agricultural educator.

The conference will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Payne County Expo Center, located at the Stillwater Fairgrounds on the corner of Highway 51 (Sixth Street) and Fairgrounds Road.

Conference sessions will be led by experts and specialists with Oklahoma State University's Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. Two hours of continuing education credits are available for poultry waste management applicators.

Producers should register as soon as possible by sending $10 per participant and applicable registration information to the Payne County Extension Office, 315 W. Sixth St., Suite 103, Stillwater, OK 74074. Checks should be made payable to Payne County Extension. Registration information should include the participant's name, address, city, ZIP code, phone number and email, if applicable.

"The $10 fee covers the cost of lunch, refreshment breaks and conference materials," Anderson said. "We ask that participants pre-register by Jan. 18, as it greatly aids in planning and helps ensure that sufficient numbers of meals, drinks and materials are on hand for everyone."

Featured topics will include the 2013 cattle market outlook, Oklahoma Quality Beef Network, common concerns and questions when negotiating leases with oil companies, use of commercial fertilizer versus poultry litter, pasture management following a drought and ammoniation of low quality roughages.

A trade show featuring up-to-date products from major agricultural suppliers also will be featured at the conference.

Anyone seeking additional information about the conference should contact Anderson at 405-747-8320.
