Cattle operations require good fences, and learning how to build and carry out their maintenance will be one of several featured demonstrations at the 60th Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course set for Monday through Wednesday, Aug. 4-6, on the Texas A&M University campus in College Station.

Also scheduled are cattle working demonstrations, which will focus on gathering cow-calf pairs, sorting calves, and processing according to Beef Quality Assurance principles. The session will demonstrate proper cattle handling practices, vaccination procedures, castration, dehorning, and parasite control.

Brian Bledsoe, meteorologist with Southern Livestock Standard, will provide a long-term weather outlook. Dr. Gary Smith, visiting professor in the Department of Animal Science at Texas A&M, College Station, will provide an overview of how the cattle business has changed the past 25 years, while Dr. Bill Mies, visiting professor in the Department of Animal Science at Texas A&M, will discuss future opportunities for beef producers through 2025.

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

An industry trade show will be held during the event, featuring more than 130 agricultural businesses and service exhibits.

Registration is $180 per person and includes educational materials, trade show admittance, and meals.

For more information, visit http://beef.tamu.edu. Producers can also register by calling 979-845-6931.
