BROWNWOOD – The Heart of Texas Cow/Calf Clinic, billed as one of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service’s longest-running educational programs, is set for May 22 at the Brown County Fairgrounds.
The fairgrounds are located on U.S. Highway 377 just south of Brownwood toward Brady.
The clinic will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a catered barbecue meal.
“When to restock and with what kind of cattle are the two main questions ranchers seem to want answered during this year’s program, so that’s what we intend to do,” said Scott Anderson, AgriLife Extension agent in Brown County. “This year’s clinic is shaping up to be one of the best beef cattle programs in our area, so mark you calendars now to attend.”
Clinic topics and speakers will include Cattle/Rural Theft Prevention, H.D. Brittain, Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association special ranger; What Kind of Cattle to Buy? Dr. Rick Machen, AgriLife Extension livestock specialist, Uvalde; and Value of Replacement Cattle, Bill Thompson, AgriLife Extension economist, San Angelo.
Anderson said the clinic is open to anyone who is interested. A $10 registration fee is payable at the door. Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by calling the AgriLife Extension office in Brown County at 325-646-0386 to ensure an accurate meal count.
