COLLEGE STATION – The 2017 Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course general session on Aug. 7 will feature discussions on export markets and a general beef cattle market outlook for the remainder of the year, according to organizers.

The short course runs from Aug. 7-9. It is the largest beef cattle educational event in the country, according to organizers, with more than 1,600 beef cattle producers from Texas and abroad. The short course is hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the department of animal science at Texas A&M.

“The beef cattle export markets are a very important part of the U.S. beef industry,” said Dr. Jason Cleere, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service beef cattle specialist and conference coordinator. “We have a full lineup of speakers who will discuss these markets, what trends are happening in the current domestic markets, as well as hear from a few who have direct business experience. Beef export markets add to the value of calves at weaning and all the way to the packer. Thus, these new export opportunities can help with calf prices in the next couple of years.”

Speakers and topics will include:

– Dr. Derrell Peel, Oklahoma State University livestock economist, Domestic Beef Cattle Market Outlook.

– Erin Borror, U.S. Meat Export Federation economist, What Does the Export Market Mean to Cow-Calf Producers?

– Kelley Sullivan, co-owner Santa Rosa Ranches, Export Markets: A Rancher’s Perspective.

– Brian Bledsoe, Southern Livestock Standard meteorologist, Weather Outlook.

Registration is $180 before July 31 and $220 after. The fee covers breakfasts, breaks, lunch and the Aug. 7 prime rib dinner. Participants can earn nine Texas Department of Agriculture pesticide continuing education units if they are already licensed.
