Program will begin at 6:00 p.m. and conclude around 8:00 p.m. We will discuss the importance of understanding how to optimize performance of your cattle. Variation in the condition of beef cows has a number of practical implications, many will be discussed. 

We will also discuss deworming of cattle. The Deworming approach involves more than just deworming cattle.  We will also learn more about when parasites could be compromising the health of your cattle. Timing is critical for your deworming program. Selecting the appropriate active ingredient, using proper administration techniques are truly important. When dewormers are used correctly producers will be feeding cattle not parasites. 

We will discuss all this and much more. Speaker for this event will be Dr. Jason Banta, Beef Cattle Specialist with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Dr. Banta is located at Texas A&M Agricultural and Extension Center in Overton, Texas.
