OSU Cow/Calf Boot Camp!

April 2012 Photos

Each day at the April 2012 camp had a busy schedule, including hands-on time with cattle, small rotating workshops and classroom sessions led by Extension educators and specialists.  Our thanks to Nancy Shearer of Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, Inc. for many terrific photos from the 3-day camp, and to Austin Moore of OSU Agricultural Communications for photos and video from the ranch visit.


The time outdoors learning and working with livestock is always a favorite part of the camp.

Another very popular session with attendees covered various aspects of on-farm composting for animal mortality management.

On the third day of camp participants visited local Enlow Ranch.   At the ranch they divided into smaller groups to rotate through several different hands-on workshops with cattle and enjoyed an informative pasture tour and cook-out lunch.

When the weather is great it may not be a LOT of fun going to the classroom, but with lively presentations and valuable information shared, everyone enjoyed learning at the camp.
