A record 2,200 Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course participants heard about potential export market opportunities and the outlook for cattle markets, as well as practical information to take to the ranch and become more profitable.
The short course, which kicked off Aug. 7 on the campus of Texas A&M University amid heavy rain in the Bryan-College Station area, was welcomed by attendees representing ranches and beef cattle operations throughout Texas, the U.S. and the world.
“Young and old, the beef cattle short course attracts beef producers from all walks of life,” said Dr. Jason Cleere, conference coordinator and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service beef cattle specialist in College Station. “In addition to the latest on cutting-edge research, there’s a lot of information that is taken back to the ranch and put immediately to work. That economic benefit not only helps with producers’ bottom lines but also helps fuel the Texas economy. Texas is the No. 1 beef cattle producing state in the U.S.”
