University of GeorgiaRaising cattle never was easy. It's not simple, either.
Biosecurity, animal identification and country-of-origin labeling are among the sessions planned for the 2003 Southeast Georgia Beef Cattle Short Course Dec. 2 in Statesboro, Ga.
Other sessions will cover production improvements, the Beef Quality Assurance program, Johne's disease, the market outlook and government programs.
The program will start with 9 a.m. registration at the Center for Agriculture in Statesboro. It will end at 3 p.m. The cost is $5 if you sign up by Nov. 25 or $10 after that.
