Wheat Disease, Grazing Pasture & Expected Progeny Differences in Bulls

Saturday, March 16, 2024

This week on SUNUP:

  • Dave Lalman, OSU Extension beef cattle specialist, says pastures are beginning to green up across the state with the early arrival of spring temperatures. Although producers are itching to get cattle out to graze, Dr. Lalman says that might not be the best idea, at least for now. 
  • Wes Lee, OSU Extension Mesonet agricultural coordinator, explains why a hard freeze could be detrimental to fruiting trees. State climatologist Gary McManus says flash drought has arrived in some parts of the state. 
  • Meriem Aoun, OSU Extension small grains pathologist, discusses the fact sheet about the wheat disease Septoria nodorum blotch, which is becoming a challenge for Oklahoma wheat producers. 
  • Kim Anderson, OSU Extension grain marketing specialist, explains how wheat exports impact prices here in the U.S.
  • Mark Johnson, OSU Extension beef cattle breeding specialist, compares the expected progeny differences of bulls to help cattle producers improve their bottom line. 
  • Finally, Darren Scott, OSU food scientist, explains the importance of freezing our food.
