Description

This registration site is for sponsorship opportunities. If you wish to register for this class please visit http://sfbfp.ifas.ufl.edu/files/Flyer%20Registration%20and%20statement%20of%20release%20-%20Nov%2019.pdf for more information.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE This course is sponsored by the Florida Cooperative Extension Service and is conducted in conjunction with area large animal Veterinary practitioners. It is part of a continuing multi-county effort to help South Florida beef producers market more pounds of beef per cow profitably.


The purpose of the course is to strengthen managerial capabilities of owners and operators of beef cattle ranches. This is an intensive course in reproductive management of the cow herd. Although the topic of pregnancy diagnosis is given extensive treatment, participants should not expect this training to make them proficient in that skill. Rather it is hoped that an improved understanding of the broad subject of breeding herd management will be achieved and that individuals enrolled in the course will be better equipped to work with their veterinarians in accomplishing breeding program objectives.

REGISTRATION Registration deadline is Friday, October 18th. However, space is limited and available on a first come first served basis. This school fills quickly so register early. To register please submit your completed registration form and statement of release, with your $100 (non-refundable) deposit to: South Florida Beef-Forage Program, C/O Bridget Stice, PO Box 9005, Drawer HS03, Bartow, FL 33831.
