OLNEY – A winter time beef cattle supplemental feeding program has been planned for Sept. 19 at the HDH Ranch and Rodeo Pavilion east of Olney. The program is conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Young and Archer counties.

World-renowned AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist Dr. Ron Gill from College Station will be the special guest presenter, said Justin Rogers, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Young County.

“This program is a spinoff of last year’s North Central Texas Cattlemen’s Clinic where Dr. Gill spoke,” Rogers said. “We had a huge interest in bringing Dr. Gill back and to devote the whole educational evening to the subject of supplemental feeding.”  

The event will begin with a meal served at 5:30 p.m. followed by the program from 6-8 p.m. For those who RSVP by Sept. 12, the cost is $15; otherwise it will be $25 at the door. RSVP to 940-549-0737 or Justin.Rogers@ag.tamu.edu as soon as possible to reserve a spot.  

“We are so excited to get Dr. Gill back to join us and expect he will draw a large crowd of those interested in learning more on proper winter supplementation from the expert,” Rogers said.

For more information, call Rogers.
