Spec Cattle Marketing Input Needed

— Written By

Wesley Hopgood with the Blue Ridge Mountain Cattlemen’s Association is seeking input from surrounding counties.

At their February 27th meeting they introduced the concept of raising co-op and or spec grade cattle using the guidelines here. The presentation has sparked reasonable interest from those in attendance. Since all Blue Ridge Mountain Cattlemen and other Cattlemen were not present, they are asking your assistance for input and possible interest in participating in this cattle marketing concept.

They are trying to reach Cattlemen within the membership area which includes, Union, Towns and Fannin Counties in GA and Clay and Cherokee Counties in NC. This could possibly reach to other Cattlemen in other surrounding Counties. Please contact Wesley Hopgood at 404-312-1291 for more information.
