Stocker Cattle, Wheat Management Workshop set for Aug. 30

Cattle and wheat producers can update their knowledge of stocker cattle and wheat management at an Aug. 30 workshop sponsored by Texas Cooperative Extension.

“This educational event is designed specifically for stocker cattle and wheat operators,” said Greg Gruben, Extension agent in Scurry County. “We have a good slate of speakers to address several interesting topics."

The program will run from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Dunn Right BBQ in Dunn. Participants can earn up to three continuing education units, Gruben said.

The morning agenda will focus on animal health, wheat management and a grain-price outlook. Country of origin labeling, ethanol and fuel prices, and hay values will be discussed during the afternoon program.

Speakers include Extension specialists and agents, Texas Department of Agriculture representatives, and animal health industry representatives.

"There is no fee to attend, but we would like to get an RSVP from folks by 5 p.m. Aug. 27, to help plan the noon meal," Gruben said.

"This workshop is a joint effort of Extension offices in Scurry, Borden, Dawson, Garza, Lynn and Mitchell counties."
