MOUNTAIN VIEW, Ark. – Animal welfare, cattle handling, livestock facilities and their
impact on beef cattle production will be the focus of the 2015 Little Red River Beef
Cattle Conference on March 18 at the Stone County Fairgrounds in Mountain View.
“There is no question about it. Cattle producers must pay more attention to how they
handle their cattle. Research has demonstrated working cattle calmly and quietly improves
cattle performance and efficiency,” said Tom Troxel, associate head-Animal Science
for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. “Research has also
demonstrated disposition is hereditable, therefore culling excitable cows will improve
the overall disposition of the herd.”
“The 2015 Little Red River Beef Cattle Conference will offer ideas to best address
many of these questions and concerns,” he said. Among the questions the conference will help answer:
“Cattle prices are at historic highs, so now is the time to invest in cattle handling
facilities,” Troxel said. “This conference will give every producer some excellent
ideas on how they can improve cattle handling facilities and improve the way they
handle cattle, keeping both cattle and handlers safe.”
The Little Red River Beef Cattle Conference is a joint educational effort by the University
of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, Ag Heritage Farm Credit Services and Farm
Credit of Western Arkansas.
