Beef short course to address meaty topics
SAN ANTONIO -- The Texas AgriLife Extension Service and the Bexar Beef Cattle Committee will present the free 2011 South Texas Beef Cattle Short Course at Palo Alto Community College, located at 1400 W. Villaret St. in San Antonio, during three consecutive Thursday evenings in January.
All program sessions will be held in Room 109 of the college’s Performing Arts Building.
Course sessions will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Jan. 13, 20, and 27, said Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources in Bexar County. Registration will be at 6 p.m., and sessions will begin at 6:30 p.m. The sessions will consist of either two or three presentations.
Presenters will include experts from the AgriLife Extension and the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service, a certified public accountant, a meteorologist, and others.
The first session presentation on Jan. 13 will address the research or control of fever ticks and their effect in Texas, and the second will address beef cattle nutrition.
There will be three presentations during the Jan. 20 session. The first will be a one-hour presentation on livestock tax advantages, including the importance of new tax codes to cattle producers. The second presentation, “Marketing Grass-Fed Beef,” as well as the third, “Saving for a Rainy Day,” will be half-hour presentations.
The Jan. 27 session will include a weather outlook for Central and South Texas and a presentation on common brush-management mistakes.
Two continuing education units for Texas Department of Agriculture private applicator license holders will be offered for attending all of each evening’s sessions, and the unit category will vary depending on the topic covered.
Registration is required for each of these sessions. For more information, contact Angel Torres at 210-467-6575 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
