With your Southeast Regional Ag News, I am Haylie Shipp. This is the Ag Information Network.

For our area cattlemen and women, we are just days away from a major event that’ll be happening at Auburn University. Registration is now open for a 2-day “Stockmanship & Stewardship” event that’ll be happening this Friday and Saturday. Karen Hiltbrand is a graduate student at Auburn who has been helping to organize. I spoke with her last week…

“Friday the 12th, we’ll start the event with two farm tours. We’ll depart from Lazenby Farm, a local agri-tourism site here in Alabama.”

Attendees are going to then tour Collins Farms and RL&M Cattle Company before returning to Lazenby Farms for the keynote speaker and welcome dinner…

“Nic Cornelison will be coming to speak with us at our dinner. So it’ll be a night of fellowship, networking, also I think some motivation and inspiration from Mr. Cornelison.”

Saturday brings in NCBA Clinicians Dr. Ron Gill and Curt Pate…

“Our first clinic in the morning will be working cattle in high heat and humidity and the risks associated with that.”

They’ll do a discussion on advocacy at lunch before talking about simple facilities for easy handling and, finally, the unpaid cattle hands…

“So how we can utilize horses and dogs into our operations.”

Breakout sessions will follow. Register for this Friday/Saturday event at
