Winterizing the Cattle Herd

Whether you own a few head on a few acres or far more than a few on many acres, planning for and providing the basic needs – food, water and shelter, will help keep cattle healthy over the winter months and beyond. Regardless of what part of the country you own cattle, what can we all do better or more of to ensure they are just as healthy in the winter as in the other seasons of the year?

We invite you to join us for an online program, Winterizing the Cattle Herd, on November 18, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Livestock Specialist, Dr. Joe Paschal. This program will outline recommended management practices for keeping your cattle herd healthy during the winter. Our weather can be cold, wet and windy, and often all at the same time. These three elements can cause great stress on cattle; this in turn opens the door to compromising their health. 

The program is free to attend, but must be registered.  Click on the registration link https://www.eventbrite.com/e/winterizing-the-cattle-herd-tickets-125375143429
