The CenTex Beef Cattle Symposium will be held Sept. 23 in Morgan. The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service educational event will be at the W4 Ranch, 1809 Farm-to-Market Road 927.

Onsite registration will begin at 8 a.m. The program will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Preregistration by Sept. 21 is required by calling 254-435-2331. The cost is $20, payable at the door, which includes breakfast and a steak lunch.
