NDSU's Carrington Research Extension Center is set to host the North Dakota Angus University Roundup Thursday, March 10, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
"For the past four summers, the North Dakota Angus University feedout project has provided cattle producers with a better understanding of how Angus-sired cattle from their operation perform in the feedlot," said Chanda Engel, livestock research specialist at the center. "Producers also have received information on performance, feed intake, carcass characteristics and the potential profitability available through retained ownership."
The event is a classroom-based program aimed at providing future feedout consignors and others interested in the program with information on how the program functions. The roundup also will provide past and potential consignors with specifics on how cattle in the program have performed, marketing insight and using genetics for reaching production targets.
