SAN ANTONIO -- The South Texas Beef Cattle Short Course, presented by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and the Bexar Beef Cattle Committee, will be held on three consecutive Thursday evenings in January at Palo Alto College located at 1400 W. Villaret in San Antonio. Short course sessions will be on Jan. 12, 19, and 26.

All short course instruction will be presented in Room 109 of Pedernales Hall. Each session will begin with registration at 6 p.m. and presentations starting at 6:30 p.m.

Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension agent for Bexar County, said either continuing education units or Beef Quality Assurance credits are available for session attendance.

The Jan. 12 session will include a U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency update and U.S. Farm Bill update from 6:30-7:30 p.m., followed by a presentation on forage management in drought conditions from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Two general continuing education units are available for this session. An RSVP for this session is required by Tuesday, Jan. 10.

The Jan. 19 session will be a beef cattle marketing update from 6:30-7:30 p.m., followed by a presentation on bovine reproductive diseases from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Two general continuing education units are available for this session. An RSVP is required by Tuesday, Jan. 17.

The Jan. 26 session will consist of a 6:30-7:30 p.m. presentation on production considerations for rebuilding a cow herd, followed by a 7:30-8:30 p.m. presentation on bovine resistance to dewormers. Two general continuing education units or two Beef Quality Assurance credits are available for this session. An RSVP is required by Tuesday, Jan. 24.

“Drought, production cost increases, and the economy have all had an impact on the beef cattle industry,” Davis said. “With these and other challenges, we want to give producers a useful variety of practical and applicable research-based information to help get them through these challenging times. We hope those involved in the industry will take advantage of this educational opportunity.”

There is a $10 cost for each evening’s session, and an RSVP is required for each evening’s session. To RSVP, contact Angel Torres at the AgriLife Extension office for Bexar County at 210-467-6575.
