Winter Grazing Program Set for August 24th in Overton

by Russell Adams, Texas A & M Agriculture

OVERTON – Beef cattle producers hoping to cut costs and maximize winter grazing should attend an Aug. 24 program in Overton focused on reducing winter feeding with stockpiled forages and winter pasture, coordinators said.

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program will be presented by Dr. Jason Banta, AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist, and Dr. Vanessa Corriher-Olson, forage specialist, both in Overton. The event is 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 1710 N. Farm-to-Market Road 3053.

Cost is $60 per person if registered by Aug. 13 and $75 per person by Aug. 22. It includes lunch and program materials.

A money back guarantee is being offered. Register online at or call Extension Conference Services at 979-845-2604.

“Now is a good time to plan for winter grazing,” Corriher-Olson said. “We’re focusing on how to manage winter forages to match forage quality with nutritional needs and the economic benefits of our recommendations.”

Topics will include:

– Stockpiled forage: management and utilization.

– Determining acres of stockpiled forage and winter pasture needed.

– Cool-season forages and variety selection.

-Monthly and seasonal forage production potential.

-Appropriate mineral supplementation.

-Estimated costs.

Two Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units, one integrated pest management and one general, will be available for licensed pesticide applicators.
