BOVINA – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service offices in Bailey and Parmer counties will conduct a Small Grains Forage Production/Stocker Cattle Meeting at 9 a.m. Aug.  31 at the XIT Recreation Center, 205 North St. in Bovina.

“Wheat planting time is upon us, so we’ll be spending a good deal of time discussing variety selection, fertility and other production issues,” said Curtis Preston, AgriLife Extension agent in Bailey County. “Other topics will include stocker cattle nutrition and management, and a grain-stocker cattle market outlook.”

Preston said all the speakers are AgriLife Extension specialists at Amarillo. They are Dr. Jourdan Bell, agronomist; Dr. Ted McCollum, beef cattle specialist; and Dr. Steve Amosson, economist.

“These experts will bring a wealth of information regarding these current topics, which should be of major interest to our producers,” Preston said.

Individual registration is $10 due upon arrival. Lunch will be provided.

One Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education unit in the general category will be offered.

For more information, contact Preston at 806-272-4583 or Sergio Mendez at 806-265-5344.
