Livestock producers have two important conferences available this summer that will offer insights on production, marketing and disease management, among other topics.
A Beginner Rancher Education Program, schedule June 9-10, is free and open to those who entered the ranching business in the last ten years. Learning new marketing opportunities will be a key element of the program. Check the Texas AgriLife website for details.
