Beef Cattle Body Condition Scoring Workshop

Baton Rouge, LA – Community Cattle Enterprise will sponsor a beef cattle body condition scoring workshop on Saturday, February 18, at 10: 00 am on Wallace Farm, 12041 Port Hudson, Pride Road in Zachary. The workshop presented by Ann Wells, DVM, will teach you how to judge your cattle’s condition by observing and touching.

Other topics on the program include Controlling Weeds With Sheep and Goats, presented by Earl Jones; and Ryegrass Demonstration Plots and Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQUIP) installations, by Robert Wallace.

Community Cattle Enterprise was established in 1988 to help limited-resource livestock farmers in East Baton Rouge Parish and surrounding areas become more efficient and sustainable producers and to train small livestock producers. The Enterprise helps train future livestock producers and helps local 4-H exhibitors prepare for livestock shows at Southern University and LSU.
