"Getting Back On Track," a workshop aimed at helping producers impacted by Hurricane Katrina, is set for Sept. 6. at the Forrest County Multi-Purpose Center, located near Hattiesburg, MS.

"Cattlemen will find this workshop to be very helpful as they continue to rebuild their operations," says Gale Martin, Mississippi Cattlemen's Association (MCA) president. The short course includes a combination of classroom and field activities ranging from rebuilding fences and low-stress cattle handling to feeding and market topics.

Registration, which includes lunch, is $20; $30 at the door. For more info, call MCA at 601-354-8951 or visit: www.mscattlemen.org/gettingbackontrack.htm.
