Southwest Beef Symposium set Dec. 14-15

A leading authority on America's new national animal identification plan will lead a panel of beef experts at the Southwest Beef Symposium Dec. 14-15 at the Ector County Coliseum in Odessa, Texas.

Gary Wilson, co-chairman of the U.S. Animal Identification Plan (USAIP) Cattle Working Group, will focus on the ramifications of traceback guidelines aimed at improving capabilities for animal disease surveillance and monitoring. In addition, Wilson and Woodward will be joined by Manny Encinias, a livestock specialist at NMSU's Clayton Livestock Research Center, and Bob Hillman, executive director of the Texas Animal Health Commission, in an afternoon animal identification panel discussion. Other attractions include a review of grazing systems by Chris Allison, an NMSU Extension range management specialist with NMSU's Range Improvement Task Force and Bruce Carpenter, an Extension livestock specialist at the Texas A&M Center in Fort Stockton, who will demonstrate a new and efficient chute-side fertility procedure.
