Just as the cattle industry has evolved over the years, cattle and their management have also. This spring, the cattle industry is invited to attend the Cattlemen’s Conference: Blueprint for the Future, May 24-25, on the Oklahoma State University campus, Stillwater.
“Cattlemen’s Conference will be a must-attend event for anyone interested in building the right kind of cattle, not just for today, but for the future,” said Jarold Callahan, Cattlemen’s Congress chairman.
The two-day event will feature speakers from each industry segment, covering topics including genetic prediction, pasture and soil health, trends in beef production, and show ring and marketing ethics, and more.
The conference, presented by Cattlemen’s Congress, Oklahoma State University and the Noble Research Institute, is reprised from the 1988 cattlemen's conference, Blueprint for the Right Kind.
“The event in the 1980s focused on building cattle that fit the industry at that given time," Callahan said. "Today, the industry has evolved and therefore, our cattle and management need to do the same.”
In addition to speaker presentations, various panel discussions also will be held, including the following:
Effectiveness of Selection Indices
Impact of Genomics on EPDs
Selection for Extremes/How Much Do We Need?
Ethics in the Showring
Ethics in Marketing
Frank Mitloehner, Extension professor and air quality specialist, University of California-Davis Department of Animal Science, will deliver the keynote address following the dinner, May 24. Dubbed “The Greenhouse Gas Guru,” Mitloehner is well-known for his research-backed stance that eating meat and taking care of the planet are not mutually exclusive.
Early registration, which is open through May 5, costs $200 and includes all sessions, meals, breaks and a social hour. Onsite registration will be available for $250.
