Great Plains Grazing will host “Adapting Grazing Management for Future Needs”, a conference aimed for beef cattle producers across Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The conference is scheduled for June 28-29, 2018 at the Grand Casino Hotel and Resort in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
Almost five years ago, a team of nearly 50 scientists from Kansas State University, the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Tarleton State University, the Noble Research Institute, and the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) began collaboration to increase the resiliency of beef cattle operations on grazing lands and wheat pastures under changing climate, land use, and markets across the Southern Great Plains. As the Great Plains Grazing project nears its completion, cattle producers across the region are invited to attend a conference tailored specifically to help producers manage their operations more effectively.
Registration for the conference is free and will include lunch and dinner on June 28, breakfast on June 29, and a lunch to conclude the event.
The event kicks off with registration at 10:30 a.m. on June 28. A buffet lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m. with opening remarks to start at 12:30 p.m. The conference will feature 5 sessions over the two days. The topics and speakers include:
All beef cattle producers in the region are encouraged to attend this conference. Registration for the event is free. Interested individuals are encouraged to register online by June 22 at http://bit.ly/GrazCAPCon
