Cattlemen’s Conference Part Two Set for May 22nd and 23rd in Stillwater, Oklahoma

Listen to Ron Hays talk with OSU’s Mark Johnson about Cattlemen’s Conference.

Senior Farm and Ranch Broadcaster Ron Hays is talking with Mark Johnson, Oklahoma State University Extension Beef Cattle Breeding Specialist, about the Cattlemen’s Conference, which will be held on May 22nd and 23rd in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Last May, the Cattlemen’s Conference, in collaboration with Oklahoma State University and the Noble Research Institute, made significant strides in the seedstock industry with the creation of ‘Cattlemen’s Conference: A Blueprint for the Future ‘. The success of last year’s program, as noted by OSU’s Mark Johnson, has paved the way for a much-anticipated part two of the conference.

“Out of all the topics we got into last year, we talked about land stewardship, and we were just coming out of a drought,” Johnson said. “A year ago in May, we were hoping we got back to normal rainfall, which fortunately we did. We were talking about late-day morbidity in feedlot cattle that was becoming an increasing problem. We had some of the foremost experts that had dealt with that, and we continue to move forward on that topic and learn more.”

Johnson also recapped topics from last year’s conference, including integrity, ethics, marketing, genetic trends, beef cattle photography, and more.

“Some really successful breeders and marketers that came and set in sat in on those panel discussions gave our audience the opportunity to react with those industry leaders and ask questions,” Johnson said.

By focusing on the development of the right kind of cattle, the Cattlemen’s Conference provides a unique opportunity for attendees to gain insights and diverse perspectives from industry leaders. This knowledge exchange is designed to not only enhance individual understanding but also contribute to the overall improvement of the industry.
