High Plains Wheat and Stocker Cattle Conference slated for Aug. 17 in Farwell

FARWELL – The Texas AgriLife Extension Service will conduct the free multi-county “High Plains Wheat and Stocker Cattle Conference” from 9 a.m. until noon Aug. 17 in the Farwell Community Center.

“This year is shaping up to be one to create pleasant memories for High Plains stocker cattle operators,” said Benji Henderson, AgriLife Extension agent in Parmer County. “We’ve had abundant moisture and cattle prices remain strong with no clouds on the immediate horizon.

“The purpose of this conference is provide our region’s producers with the best information we can early enough so they can use it when planning this year’s wheat crop.”

The event’s scheduled speakers are Dr. Brent Bean, AgriLife Extension agronomist, and Dr. Ted McCollum, AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist, who are both headquartered in Amarillo.

The conference is being conducted by the AgriLife Extension agents in Parmer, Bailey, Castro, Lamb and Hockley counties.
