Beef Cattle Summit March 29th

Plan to Join us at the 2018 Eastern Oklahoma Beef Cattle Summit by Elizabeth Witt, Ag/4-H Extension Educator for Push County Cattle producers seeking ways to better manage their operations in challenging business conditions should register now to attend the March 29th Eastern Oklahoma Beef Cattle Summit in McAlester. This year’s summit will emphasize ‘Forage Management’ in animal agriculture. Forage Management usually starts with the soil and taking steps to ensure you can make the best-informed decisions possible about soil sampling. This is key to being able to utilize your forage resources. The summit will take place from 8 am to 4 pm at the Southeast Oklahoma Expo Center, located at 4500 W. Hwy 270 in McAlester. Registration is $10 per participant, which will cover the cost of materials, refreshments & lunch. If you would like to attend please pre-register by March 23 to ensure we have sufficient numbers of materials, refreshments and lunches available. Registration forms are available at the Push County Extension Office. Nathan Slaton, Professor of Soil Science at the University of Arkansas, will be the keynote speaker, providing insights about ‘Forage Fertilization’. Other sessions will focus on hot topics like feral hog management, native grass management, sprayer management, and a hay bale demonstration. Sessions will be led by experts from OSU’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and Oklahoma Beef Council. A trade show and door prizes will also be showcased. This summit has become one of the premier single-day beef events in the region. Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with experts from the industry and university systems. As well as interact with fellow producers who may be in similar situations, and may have developed solutions that could prove useful in your own operation.
