‘Restarting Your Cattle Operation’ series continues in Falls City April 18
The third program of the “Restarting Your Cattle Operation” series, titled “Fitting Cattle to their Environment,” will be held Wednesday, April 18, at 7 p.m. in the Falls City Community Hall in Falls City.
Dr. Joe Paschal, Extension livestock specialist, will discuss fitting cattle to their environment as producers think about restocking. Fitting cattle to their environment can solve most management problems.
Paschal is having to cancel another event to present this program, and the local Texas AgriLife Extension Service is asking producers to make an effort to attend this important meeting.
Dr. Larry Falconer, Extension economist, will cover the costs of restocking. With cattle prices as high as they are, this could be a tough topic, but producers need to know what it will cost to get back into the cattle business or restock the cattle they liquidated during the drought. Producers may decide that now is not the time to restock due to high cattle prices and instead rest their pastures longer.
Two General Continuing Education Units will be offered. A $20 participation fee will be payable at the door.
For more information, call the Wilson County office of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service at 830-780-7357.
