Where’s the beef? Cattlemen meet Dec. 1

By Morgan Watts

Rowan Cooperative Extension

Do you raise beef cattle in Rowan County? Or have you thought about starting to raise beef cattle?

If you answered yes to either of those questions, I would encourage you to join the Rowan County Cattlemen’s Association. This association is a valuable tool to network with other producers in the county and see what’s working for them.

It’s also a great tool to learn about different problems and current issues at hand from some of the leading specialists at North Carolina State University, industry leaders and other professionals, alike.

The association meets once a month and is held during the winter months when you are least busy (October through April). The meetings are held the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. A wide range of topics are discussed. Just to give you an example, at the November meeting we talked about the new VFD law that goes into effect January 2017.

Our December meeting will be about marketing cattle and that will be led by Harward Brother’s Livestock Market. There is a catered meal at every meeting and the cost is $5 per person to eat. If this looks like something that would interest you, consider joining us for our December meeting which will be Thursday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Rowan County Extension Office, 2727 Old Concord Road.

If you have any questions about joining this association or attending a meeting, please call Morgan Watts, Rowan County livestock agent, at 704-216-8970.
