SAN ANTONIO – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present the All Breeds Bull and Heifer Sale Educational Program Feb. 12 in collaboration with the San Antonio Livestock Exposition.
The free program will be from 2-4 p.m. at the SALE Auction Barn, 3201 E. Houston.
“This is an opportunity for those planning to go to the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo to learn more about beef processing and what it takes to get agricultural products from the farm to the table,” said Sam Womble, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent, Bexar County.
Takisha Durst, AgriLife Extension urban agriculture educator, Bexar County, will present “The Role of Agriculture with Path to the Plate.” Path to the Plate is an AgriLife Extension initiative to help consumers understand how their food choices impact their well-being by making the connection between agriculture and health.
Dr. Joe Paschal, AgriLife Extension livestock specialist, Corpus Christi, will show a beef processing virtual tour. The tour will provide a step-by-step account of how beef is processed and made ready for human consumption.
Womble said accommodations will be made for those persons with disabilities.
“We request anyone planning to attend who has a disability contact the AgriLife Extension office for Bexar County at least two weeks in advance of the event to advise us of any auxiliary aid or service required,” he said.
