The Ohio Beef Cattle Nutrition and Management School is set to be held in 2 locations, with 2 sessions at each locale.
Session 1 will focus on utilizing small grains in the diets of all ages and production groups of beef cattle, utilizing alternative forages, and managing your herd or feedlot with lower quality feedstuffs. This discussion will be led by our former OSU research nutritionist and current University of Georgia Department of Animal Sciences Chair, Dr. Francis Fluharty. Session 1 will take place from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. in Sandusky County at Luckey Farmers Inc. main office on January 29th, and will be repeated from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the OSU Newark Campus in Licking County on January 30th.
Session 2 will also be from 6-9:00 p.m. at the same locations on February 12th in Sandusky County, and will be repeated on February 13th in Licking County. This session will feature talks by several OSU Extension Educators on marketing strategies, commodity market outlook, feeding for the grids/carcass quality, forage testing, and managing annual forages for grazing and hay.
Participants who attend both sessions will qualify to receive BQA certification.
The cost for the two session Ohio Beef Cattle Nutrition and Management School will be $40 and will include handouts, snacks and also the BQA certification.
