The OSU Cattlewomen’s Boot Camp is a project that combines elements of two successful programs, Annie’s Project and the Oklahoma Livestock Boot Camps. Using previous agendas from the boot camps and the teaching model of Annie’s Project, the program intends to create an informative and engaging learning experience for female producers covering various methods on how to manage the production, financial, and market risks when operating a beef cow/calf operation.
This program will be a three-day workshop that will combine traditional educational programming with hands-on demonstration and activities and classroom exercises. Topics that will be covered include but are not limited to:
- Cattle Evaluation
- Calf Management
- Herd Nutrition
- Hay Evaluation
- Forage Production
- Production and Financial Records
- Farm Transitions
- General Management Practices
- Farm Business Planning
- Herd Health and Vaccinations
- Facility Management and Selection
- Reproduction Management
- Calving Management
This program will partner with the Southern Extension Risk Management Education, Oklahoma Cattlewomen’s Association, Oklahoma Women in Agriculture, and Oklahoma Women Veterans Program.
