SOUTHEASTERN BEEF CATTLE MARKETING SCHOOL SET
AUBURN, Ala. -- Extension specialists from four southeastern universities and the U.S. Department of Agriculture will seek to help cattle farmers manage price risks and improve profits during the Southeastern Beef Cattle Marketing School Sept. 14-15 at Auburn University's Beef Teaching Unit.
Participants will evaluate cattle and learn how they fit into today's cattle market. They will also learn about cattle cycles, seasonal price trends, pricing, how to predict cash feeder prices, and how to use futures and options contracts.
In addition, farmers will be briefed on the National Animal ID Plan, and a producer panel will discuss cattle marketing opportunities such as retained ownership and value-added marketing.
Registration is $35 per person, and includes notebooks, handout materials, meals and refreshments at the school. Registration at the door will be $50 per person. Early registration is urged, as space is limited.
Checks should be made payable to AU Agricultural Economics Department, and mailed before Sept. 8 along with name, farm-ranch name, address and contact information to: Dr. Walt Prevatt, 208 Comer Hall, Auburn University, Ala., 36849. Cancellation must be received seven days prior to the workshop to receive a refund.
