STILLWATER — Oklahoma State University and Extension experts will host two online teleconferences March 26 and 31 to address questions about the cattle industry, markets and COVID-19.
Agricultural producers are adjusting to the pandemic spread of the novel coronavirus as well as they are able to, OSU Extension Livestock Marketing Specialist Derrell Peel said, but it’s difficult to keep anxiety in check and plan ahead. The purpose of the March 26 webinar hosted through Zoom.com is to help provide answers and perspective about the country’s cattle markets, macroeconomic effects and international trade. The March 31 webinar will bring those concerns down to a regional perspective.
The first event will begin at 7 p.m. March 26. It is free and open to the public. Questions for the webinar can be sent by email to josh.maples@msstate. edu. Experts available for comment will include Peel and Josh Maples at Mississippi State University Extension.
The March 31 Zoom conference requires registration at https://dasnr.zoom.us/webi-nar/register/WN_J6jy86u-VQwe97pcPON6X3Q. Online attendance will be limited to 500 people.
