The Mississippi Cattlemen’s Association (MCA) will host its 2014 Cattlemen’s College from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 27 at Town Creek Farm in West Point. The event is free, but requires registration, and will feature speakers and programs pertaining to a variety of ranch and farm related topics.
Clay County Mississippi State University Extension Service Director B.J. McClenton said the MCA has hosted the college for the past two years, and this is the first one to be held in the Golden Triangle.
“They do one in the northern part of the state and one in the south,” McClenton said. “The second one will be the day after ours in Brookhaven.”
He said the cattle college is producer-oriented, and covers all aspects of beef and cattle production. The college gives cattlemen and women cost-effective options on how to manage their cow herd, manage grass and how to keep a cow in pasture longer, according to McClenton.
MCA President Price Wallace said in a media release that MCA knows producers must be experts in their field in order to continue to be successful.
“We strive to provide the most current topics and foremost speakers for our event,” Wallace said. “It’s an excellent opportunity for cattlemen and women to learn more about the most current management practices, as well as industry issues that could impact their beef business.”
