Ohio Beef Cattle School dates announced

| January 9, 2015

COSHOCTON – Local beef producers are encouraged to participate in the upcoming 2015 Ohio Beef Cattle School. This series will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 27 and continue on Feb. 10 and Feb. 24, and will start each evening at 7 p.m. These sessions will follow a similar format used in the past as each session will be broadcast locally via an internet link. The programs will address some of the most important issues currently facing Ohio’s beef industry.  Rapidly changing forces are constantly shaping the beef industry’s landscape and successful producers need to stay abreast of changes to remain competitive.

The primary themes that will be discussed in the 2015 school will include “Sustainable Beef Production”, “Beef Animal Handling and Facility Design”, “Manure Management and Fertilizer Application Issues for Beef Producers”, “Future of Antibiotic Use in Beef Cattle”, and “Capitalizing on the Historic Beef Economy.”  Specific topics and speakers for each of the sessions will be announced soon.

Coshocton County OSU Extension will be a host site for these webinars. Meetings will be in the Extension Office Conference Room in the County Services Bldg. located at 724 South 7th Street, Coshocton.  There is no cost for participating, but please call 622-2265 or email [email protected] if you are planning on attending so that ample seating and handouts are available.
