Northern States Beef Conference Set for Jan. 17-18
The first Northern States Beef Conference will be held at the Watertown (S.D.) Regional Extension Center, 1910 W. Kemp Ave., on Jan. 17-18.
“Extension Service personnel from North Dakota State University, South Dakota State University and the University of Minnesota are bringing together an excellent lineup of speakers to talk about the current state of the beef industry and how producers and other beef industry professionals throughout the region can take advantage of the opportunities that exist in today’s complex beef industry structure,” says Carl Dahlen, NDSU’s Extension beef cattle specialist.
The 1 1/2-day conference is for producers with cow-calf, feedlot, backgrounding and stocker cattle operations, as well as Extension personnel, members of allied industries and other beef industry stakeholders.
During the first night of the conference, producers will have the opportunity to interact with speakers during roundtable sessions. Also, a tradeshow will be held at the conference to provide producers with the latest product and service updates.
The fee is $150 for general registration and $80 for students.
