OVERTON -- The longest continuously running livestock and pasture management school for novices is now accepting students, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientist.

The Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Overton will be home for the three-day Pasture and Livestock Management Workshop set for Tuesday through Thursday, March 25-27. Registration is $350.

Participants may reserve an opening by phone or email by contacting Jennifer Lloyd at 903-834-6191 or jllloyd@ag.tamu.edu.

Registration includes meals, including lunches, barbecue, a steak dinner, continental style breakfasts, break refreshments, and educational materials.

The school is divided between the classroom and instruction in the field. Outdoor demonstrations cover all aspects of running a beef operation, from establishing and maintaining high-quality forages, calibrating sprayers, taking soil samples, castrating and vaccinating cattle, and dehorning calves.

Also included will be training on writing a business plan for a ranch, keeping proper records, choosing the appropriate forage species for different soils, understanding soil fertility, establishing forage systems that minimize winter feeding costs, setting correct stocking rates, choosing the right cattle breeds, promoting good animal health, marketing cattle, stocking strategies, animal health, and controlling feral hogs.
