The Northeast Panhandle Beef Conference will focus on selling beef directly to consumers.
Speakers to discuss legalities, management on Oct. 21 in Perryton

Selling beef directly to consumers is the topic of the upcoming Northeast Panhandle Beef Conference, Oct. 21. 

“We have had a number of producers express interest in selling beef directly to the consumer because they are wanting to try to capture more of the value-added opportunities for their production,” said Scott Strawn, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension agent for Ochiltree County.  “We hope this will get them on the right track to legally do this, while keeping cattle management in mind to continue to provide a quality product.”

Topics will include “Legal Requirements for Processing and Selling Beef Direct to the Consumer” and “Management of Cattle for Direct Beef Sales.” Tiffany Lashmet, AgriLife Extension agricultural law specialist, and Jason Smith, AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist, both of Amarillo, will be the speakers for the event.
