BBQ Sandwich Fundraiser This Friday to Benefit Teague Christmas Committee

Friday, September 22nd, a BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich fundraiser will be held downtown at the Farmers Market, just off Main Street in Teague. All funds raised go towards the committee’s ultimate goal of expanding Christmas lighting in the Teague City Park, as well as towards special planned events. Regular updates to the committee’s plans may also be found on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/TeagueChristmasInThePark, or by searching Facebook for “Teague Christmas in the Park”.

All interested persons please feel free to contact Charles Gregory at 254-739-5010, and lights and display donations may be dropped off in Teague at the Pharmacy Plus, right off Main...

Managing The Beef Herd Workshop

Planning… to capture opportunities The past six or seven years has seen many challenges for beef cattle producers. Drought forced liquidation of herds at low prices while having to buy feed at record high levels. We also saw cattle numbers drop to near record low numbers. These record low numbers of cattle helped push cattle prices to all time high prices. Of course these record prices did not last nearly long enough.

With the volatile cattle market we have to make informed and wise decisions in our management programs and marketing programs. Nutrition is a major expense in all cow/calf operations. Many questions arise when it comes to nutrition. What can I feed? What is the best value for my operation? How much do I need to feed? How do I know the cost of my feeding program? Is hay my best option? Are bulk commodities an option? Other challenges include herd health concerns, including the latest on Trichomoniasis. Culling Bulls and Cows? Nutritional needs for different classes of cattle (heifers, 1st calf heifers, mature cows, etc.) How body condition and body weight determine nutritional needs? How quality of hay effects nutrition? On Friday, September 22, 2017, three general CEU’s will be...
