Dakota Cattle Conference to start Dec. 6

By Staff | Oct 20, 2017

Plan on attending the premier event in north central and northwestern North Dakota, the ‘Dakota Cattle Conference’.

For this conference North Dakota State University Extension Service is bringing together experts from the northern U.S. and Canada to discuss the cattle industry and what producers need to know.

The conference will be kicking off with a free cattle breeding workshop the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 6 from 4 to 7 p.m., after the close of the Heartland Ag Showcase. Topics include tools that producers can use to help them get what they want out of their herd.

It will be followed on Thursday, Dec. 7, by a full day of discussion from cattle experts on drought challenges and issues, alternatives to supplementing low-quality feed, and much more.

NDSU Extension area specialists who have been working with producers throughout North Dakota this summer will be on hand to talk management, what to watch for and economics.

The Dakota Cattle Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Riverside, Minot, ND.
