CROCKETT – A Bull Selection Seminar is scheduled from 1-5 p.m. Nov. 3 at the Santa Rosa Ranch headquarters in Crockett.
The ranch is located at 19300 Highway 21.
The no–cost seminar will cover cattle breeds, breeding programs, visual selection, individual performance data, expected progeny differences, genetic markers, bull fertility and bull-to-cow ratios.
Dr. Jason Cleere and Dr. Jason Banta, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service beef cattle specialists from College Station and Overton, respectively, will lead the seminar. It is sponsored by AgriLife Extension and the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association.
“A bull is responsible for 50 percent of the herd’s calf crop and a good bull is an investment that can certainly pay big dividends,” Banta said. “Workshop attendees will learn both applied as well as advanced bull selection techniques to assist them when making that next bull purchase for their herd operations.”
After the workshop, the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers association will hold a gathering. Workshop attendees are encouraged to stay for dinner and receive an update on issues facing ranchers.
