Replacement heifer selection, herd health, deworming update and cost management are on the agenda for the 2014 Little Red River Beef Cattle Conference on April 10 at the Cleburne County Livestock Auction in Heber Springs.

"With normal rainfall returning to Arkansas in 2013, many cattle producers are looking to return their cattle operations to production levels prior to the 2012 drought," said Tom Troxel, associate head-Animal Science, for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. "Producers are asking the questions on how to best do that. The 2014 Little Red River Beef Cattle Conference will offer ideas to best address many of their questions and concerns."

Herd health and an update on the newest deworming products will also be presented. Managing cow cost will be the third presentation.

Contact the Van Buren County Extension office for more details and registration information. The conference is from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
