Beef Conference set for Oct. 23


University of Missouri Extension will host the fifth annual Southwest Missouri Beef Conference starting at 4 p.m., Oct. 23, at the Citizens Memorial Hospital community rooms in Bolivar, Mo.

"Beef producers have experienced drought, high input prices, fluctuating cattle prices, and several other challenges the last few years," said Wesley Tucker, agriculture business specialist with University of Missouri Extension. "Each topic at this year's conference has been individually selected based on the needs of Southwest Missouri cattlemen."

Tucker says this conference is not just for Polk County residents. "Anyone in southwest Missouri that's interested in making money in the cattle business is welcome to attend," said Tucker.

The presentations at the conference this year will begin with Justin Sexten, Ph.D., a beef specialist with MU Extension, speaking about alternative feeding strategies and how to get our beef cows through this winter. Pat Guinan, Ph.D., MU Extension state climatologist, will speak about long range weather patterns including the drought of 2012.

Abner Womack, Ph.D., cofounder of the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute, will discuss his latest findings on the current economic crisis in the U.S. and when we can expect to begin to see a recovery.

Mike Kastens will introduce a new project of MU Extension called Quality Beef. The program is designed to assist producers in capturing more of the value in their calves by investing in quality genetics.

The cost for producers wanting to attend the conference is $5 per person, which includes a beef dinner for those who register by Oct. 19. For more information or to register, call the Polk County Extension Center at 417-326-4916 or email the center at
