NDSU Feedlot School set for Jan 22-23

Published: 21 December 2012

NDSU’s Carrington Research Extension Center has scheduled its annual NDSU Feedlot School for Jan. 22-23, 2013. 

The intensive course is for cattle producers, feeders, backgrounders, feed industry personnel, animal health-care suppliers and anyone else interested in learning more about feedlot production, nutrition, waste management and marketing. 

“Cattle feeding is a multifaceted business,” says Karl Hoppe, area Extension livestock specialist at the center. “While delivering a timely, balanced ration to the cattle is a major segment of the business, resource and risk management are paramount. With a new packing plant operating in Aberdeen, S.D., there may be an increase in cattle fed to finish. However, the backgrounding feeders will continue to be a strong industry in North Dakota.” 

The school also will include a commercial feedlot tour and a tour of the Research Extension Center’s livestock facilities. 

For more information about the course or to register, contact Foster County Extension agent Joel Lemer at 701-652-2581 or

NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
