By LARRY SPRADLIN | Hopkins County Extension Agent for Agriculture
July 10, 2005 -- Hey guys, good to be home. I just got this over e-mail, and wanted to pass it along to you. This is a really good program that will be of benefit to our beef producers. Let me know if you have any questions.:
The 2005 Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course will be held Aug. 1-3 and is considered one of the largest and most extensive beef cattle programs in the United States. From the most inexperienced novice rancher to the most experienced cattleman, the Beef Cattle Short Course has valuable beef cattle information for everyone. Changes and new innovations are being introduced to the beef industry and this year's program highlights many of these issues.
The conference will feature 15 different Cattleman's College programs and two general sessions highlighting key industry issues. There will also be several opportunities to obtain up to 6 pesticide CEUs. In addition to the this year's exciting programs, the trade show is shaping up to be bigger than ever with over 80 exhibitors registered to date.
Short Course registration costs $120 per participant (if registered by July 25), and includes admission to the two-and-a-half day educational conference, including the Cattleman's College, a copy of the Short Course proceedings (a 300-page publication), trade show admittance, a ticket to the special Aggie prime rib dinner, additional meals and refreshment breaks.
