FLORESVILLE -- The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Wilson County, in cooperation with the Texas Farm Bureau, will present the “Fall Beef Cattle Educational Program” Wednesday, Sept. 18, from 6-8:30 p.m. The program will be held at the Wilson County Show Barn located at 435 S.H. 97 east of Floresville.

“This is a free educational program presented by Wilson County Farm Bureau and Agrilife Extension in Wilson County,” said Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources. “This is a critical time for beef cattle producers to begin preparing for how to meet the nutritional requirements of their herd through the fall and winter. The program will provide useful and timely information on this topic.”

Registration will be from 6-6:30 p.m., followed by a short introduction by Tom Ortmann, president of Wilson County Farm Bureau, and Davis. The program will begin at 6:40 p.m. with a comprehensive presentation by Dr. Rick Machen, AgriLife Extension livestock specialist in Uvalde, titled “Winter 2013 -- Holding on with Hay and Mirror, Mirror ... What Lies Just Ahead?”

“Dr. Machen will provide information on forage and hay requirements for producers to get cattle through the 2013 fall and winter,” Davis said. “He will also give a winter market outlook.”

One Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education unit is offered in the general category.

While there is no charge for the program, seating is limited, so attendees are requested to RSVP to the Wilson County Farm Bureau Office at 830-393-2481.

For more information on the program, contact Davis at 830-393-7357 or
