Jan. 14 Cattle Trails Cow-Calf Conference in Wichita Falls

Annual conference provides cow-calf producers the most up-to-date information on topics that influence cattle profits.

Recovering from drought and getting back to sound production will be the focus of the Cattle Trails Cow-Calf Conference Jan. 14 in Wichita Falls. The event is a joint effort between Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service.   

This annual conference provides cow-calf producers the most up-to-date information on topics that influence cattle profits, said Stan Bevers, AgriLife Extension economist in Vernon.

The slogan of the annual conference is “driving your operation to profits,” but Bevers said the last few drought-influenced years have been pretty tough to generate any profit. However, many areas of north Texas and southern Oklahoma have received enough moisture for ranchers to consider re-stocking and returning to normal production practices.

“Returning to ‘normal’ production will require a new level of understanding and pencil pushing,” Bevers said.
