Making a profit from beef cattle production is never easy and it has been even more difficult this past year. There are many factors that contribute to input and cost management. It's a lot to think about.
To help us think through management and how it impacts beef cattle profitability we are hosting a conference that will be an intensive, one-day seminar focusing on key profitability topics for cow/calf producers. This program will take place on Friday, March 13, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Madison County Extension Office.
Topics include: Cow/calf budgets and profit drivers; Managing Costs focusing on hay production; How much is too much to pay for a heifer?; Improved winter feeding practices; Herd management keys: weaning rate, culling, selling calves in groups, and cow size; Tax Management strategies and issues; and profitable stocking rates.
A meal will be served and thanks to generous support from Central Kentucky Ag Credit and Meade Tractor, there is no cost to attend the program! However, please call 859-623-4072 as soon as possible to register so we can make meal preparations.
