Fall Beef School Begins on Oct. 6

Clif Little, OSU Extension Educator Guernsey County

The OSU Extension Beef Team members have made plans for the 2015 Fall Beef School. The dates for the school are Tuesday, October 6, 13, and 20th. Each night the program will start at 5:30 p.m. Classes will be held at the OSU Eastern Agricultural Research Station in Belle Valley. Supper will be provided with registration each night. The school has been designed to address practical issues facing beef producers.

The first night we will cover Forage weed control options with OSU Extension Educators Mark Landefeld and Clif Little; reasons for open cows with Dr. Justin Kieffer OSU Veterinarian; and we will cover in a video segment our procedures for working cows and calves.

The second night we will provide an update from FSA and NRCS on the government programs; beef breeds carcass characteristics and trends with OSU Educator Breanna Pye; and spring development with SWCD technician Jason Tyrell.

On the last night we will visit a rotational grazing farm and go over a basic low cost beef cattle working facility.

The cost of the program is $10, which cover registration for all three nights. Please register by completing and returning the registration form at: http://guernsey.osu.edu/events.
