Two historically separate beef cattle workshops, Beyond the Bunk and Beef College, combined this year to give producers a bigger program with more options.
The daylong beef cattle workshop is scheduled for Dec. 19 at the Best Western Doublewood Inn in Bismarck, N.D. It is a collaborative effort of NDSUs animal sciences department, NDSU Extension Service and North Dakota Stockmens Association.
Key industry spokesmen will offer insights into the state of the beef industry and how current research efforts can position North Dakota producers to adapt to a changing industry. The latest research on feed efficiency, vaccination programs and improving the feeding value of corn stover are among the topics at the event.
Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the program at 9:30. The cost of the program is $30 if paid by Dec. 12 and includes lunch. The cost after that date is $40 and will not include lunch.
