The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will hold the next two webinars of its COVID-19 West Region Beef Cattle Marketing Program series on June 17 and July 1. Both online events are free.

“There have been so many drastic changes in the cattle markets these past few months during the pandemic that we wanted to bring our stakeholders the latest information on important programs like CFAP (Coronavirus Food Assistance Program) that may be of assistance to them,” said Sami Lindsey, AgriLife Extension agent for Crane County. “We’ll also continue to cover the day-to-day demands of successfully managing and marketing a beef cattle operation.”

June 17, Bart Fischer, co-director of the Texas A&M Agriculture and Food Policy Center in College Station, will provide a CFAP update.

The July 1 event will highlight beef and range management programs. Speakers will be Richard Machen, Paul Genho Endowed Chair, King Ranch Institute for Ranch Management, Kingsville, and James Jackson, AgriLife Extension range specialist, Stephenville.

The webinars will run from 11 a.m.-noon. Attendees need to preregister for the Zoom-based webinars:
