The Texas AgriLife Extension Service will conduct a cow/calf Standardized Performance Analysis (SPA) workshop on Tuesday, June 8, 2010. It will be held at the Brown County Extension Office, 605 Fisk Avenue in Brownwood, Texas. The SPA workshop and analysis is designed to help producers reduce their cost of production and improve their production and marketing efficiency.
Participants in the SPA workshop will receive information that tells where money is being spent and made for the cow/calf enterprise; a "herd report card" that compares their performance to other herd results for key measures: software and supporting materials. Extension specialists in economics, beef cattle and rangeland management will assist producers with the analysis and provide a private overview of the results. The SPA workshop is intended for both commercial and purebred cattle producers.
There will only be a limited number of producers accepted so don't delay in registering for the June 8 workshop in Brownwood. There is a $50 registration fee per ranch. It is important to register early so you can be advised on how to organize your data for the SPA analysis. For more information or to get registration materials, contact the Brown County Extension Office at 325-646-0386 or simply visit the office.
