Oklahoma Cattlewomen’s Cow/Calf Boot Camp combined elements of two successful
programs, Annie’s Project and the Oklahoma Livestock Boot Camps. Using previous
agendas from livestock boot camps and the teaching model of Annie’s Project,
the program created an informative and engaging learning experience for female
producers covering various methods on how to manage the production, financial,
and market risks when operating a beef cow/calf operation.
This program consisted of a three-day workshop
combining traditional educational programming with hands-on demonstration
activities and classroom exercises. Topics that were covered included: Cattle
Evaluation, Calf Management, Herd Nutrition, Hay Evaluation, Forage
Production, Marketing, Production and Financial Records, Farm Transitions,
General Management Practices, Farm Business Planning, Herd Health and
Vaccinations, Facility Management and Selection, Reproduction Management, and
This program partnered with the Oklahoma
Cattlewomen’s Association, Oklahoma Women in Agriculture, and Oklahoma Women
Veterans Program to promote and market to female cattle producers in Oklahoma.
This program will used pre and post assessments,
evaluations, and post conference surveys to determine the level of knowledge
gained, planned practice adoptions, and actual practice adoptions.
