COLLEGE STATION -- The 59th Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course is scheduled for Monday through Wednesday, Aug. 5-7, at Texas A&M University in College Station.

Weather outlook and a cattle market outlook are two of the featured topics to be discussed during the general session scheduled Aug. 5.

“A lot of producers are wanting to know how long this current market cycle will last and how to go about herd expansion strategies in the future,” said Dr. Jason Cleere, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service beef cattle specialist in College Station and conference coordinator. “The long-term outlook is one of the many topics that will be featured in the 22 different cattleman’s college sessions at the short course.”

The short course has become one of the largest and most comprehensive beef cattle educational programs in the United States, Cleere noted.

The cattleman’s college portion provides participants with an opportunity to choose workshops based on their level of production experience and the needs of their ranch, Cleere said.

Participants can receive a Texas Department of Agriculture private pesticide applicator’s license during the short course and can earn at least seven pesticide continuing education units if they are already licensed, Cleere added.

An industry trade show will be held during the event, featuring more than 110 agricultural businesses and service exhibits.

Registration is $160 per person and includes educational materials, a copy of the 600-page Beef Cattle Short Course proceedings, trade show admittance, admission to meals, and refreshments.

Registration information and a tentative schedule can be found on the short course website at or by contacting Cleere’s office at 979-845-6931.
