NMSU’s Catlett to discuss future of cattle industry at Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course.

August 6th - 8th, 2012 • College Station, TX

Past Event:

The Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course will feature a New Mexico State University economist who will address the future of the cattle industry and economic trends during the Aug. 6 general session in College Station.

Dr. Lowell Catlett, a Regents professor, dean and chief administrative officer in the university’s College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, will provide insights and an outlook on the agriculture industry, specifically beef-cattle production, plus the overall current state of the economy.

The short course is coordinated by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and scheduled for Aug. 6-8 on the Texas A&M University campus.

“Dr. Catlett is a noted, national speaker who provides varied and upbeat presentations,” said Dr. Jason Cleere, AgriLife Extension Service beef cattle specialist and conference coordinator. “His latest focus is the economy and what we can expect for agriculture and beef cattle markets in the future.”

Meanwhile, the cattleman’s college portion of the short course provides participants with an opportunity to choose workshops based on their level of production experience and the needs of their ranch, Cleere said.

Registration information and a tentative schedule was mailed to previous participants in May and can also be found on the short course website at http://beef.tamu.edu.
