Amarillo beef producers have the opportunity to learn about Trichomoniasis and weed management.

The Curry, Roosevelt, and Quay County Extension Offices will put on a beef cattle workshop with presenters from New Mexico State University. They will cover the topics of Trichomoniasis, the beef cattle market, and range management.

Trichomoniasis is a venereal disease that causes infertility and spontaneous abortions in cows and heifers. It is spread by a bull during reproduction. The bull does not show any external signs of infection, but there are certain signs in cows and heifers that could mean the disease is present.

Dr. John Wenzel, the New Mexico State University Extension Veterinary Specialist, will be giving the presentation on Trichomoniasis.

Ted McCollum will present the beef cattle market. McCollum is the beef cattle specialist with the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension.

Finally, Kert Young, also with New Mexico State University, will host a discussion over rangeland weed management.

Registration for the event will take place at 8 a.m. on May 26th at the Curry County Events Center Pavilion. The event will conclude with lunch at noon.
