May 2024 Roundup - Calhoun

Join us for the May 2024 Roundup Meeting hosted by the Young Cattlemen's Council on May 17th at the Calhoun Stockyard!

Brought to you by our overall 2024 roundup sponsors:

This Roundup Meeting will be planned and hosted by the Young Cattlemen's Council and will focus on safety in cattle production, along with marketing! We will begin the day with a Livestock
Emergency Response Preparedness (LERP) training led by Jason Duggin. This training will be similar to the LERP training that is held for Law Enforcement Officers, but will be targeted
more towards producers and what they can do in the case of a wreck or other emergency while pulling a livestock trailer. Following this training, attendees will have the opportunity to
tour a Pot trailer and speak with a driver who hauls cattle in it, learn about mortality and disposal from the Georgia Department of Agriculture, and learn how they can prepare for
emergencies on their operation from Law Enforcement Officers! We will then have lunch and hear an update from GCA and GBB, and cap the day off with a Marketing focused talk from
University of Tennessee economics professor, Dr. Andrew Griffith.

3 BQA CEUs (continuing education unit) will be available at this Roundup Meeting! Click here for more information on the Beef Quality Assurance Program.
