The 30th annual Northwest Florida Beef Conference and Trade Show will be Feb. 11 at the Jackson County Agriculture Conference Center in Marianna, Florida. Registration and the trade show open at 7:30 a.m. central time. The program starts at 8:15 a.m. and concludes with a steak lunch. There is a $5 per person registration fee for the event, payable at the door.
The focus of the beef conference this year will be “Investing in the Future of Your Herd.” The speakers will be sharing ideas to guide ranchers on investments worth consideration during the good years, to prepare for leaner times in the future. Topics will include improving pasture management, pasture weed control, supplement feeding systems, herd performance, financial management and herd reproduction.
The beef conference will also feature a trade show of businesses and agencies that offer goods and services to cattle producers in the region. Time will be provided to visit with the company representatives to learn about products and services offered for beef cattle operations.
The Northwest Florida Beef Conference and Trade Show is an educational program provided by the UF/IFAS Panhandle Agriculture Extension Team. For more information on the conference or exhibiting in the trade show, contact Doug Mayo at 850-482-9620 or [email protected]
