Over 100 producers from five states gathered in Starkville last week for the Stewardship and Stockmanship program hosted by Mississippi State University Extension Service and sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim. Curt Pate and Ron Gill put on an impressive cattle handling demonstration on Friday. The two day event featured information and workshops on cattle stress, beef quality assurance, and much more.
