Speakers and topics will include: “Cattle Vaccinations: Choosing the Right Vaccines at the Right Time,” Dr. Floron C. Faries, AgriLife Extension program leader for veterinary medicine at College Station; “Market and Economic Outlook,” Dr. Jason Johnson, AgriLife Extension economist, Stephenville; “Internal Parasite Control: Which De-worming Program Fits My Operation?” Dr. Tom Craig, professor of Veterinary Medical Science, Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine.

“There is no question that the beef cattle business has undergone some trying times the past few years,” Joshua Blanek, AgriLife Extension agent for Somervell County said.

“Significant changes within the beef industry combined with increased production costs, drought, national and world economic woes and a softening cattle market have affected the entire beef production chain. It is now more important than ever to stay current and up to date on new technologies and practices.”

AgriLife Extension offices in Somervell, Bosque, Hood and Johnson counties are hosting the event. The meeting and supper will be provided free, Mr Blanek said.
