Thank you for Spring, Calving, and all the Help!


This week’s Center Points is truly about appreciation. Partly for appreciation for spring which arrived this last week!  But also appreciation for those that work at the CREC livestock unit.

I want to highlight some of the upcoming activities at the Livestock Unit and express my appreciation to the staff (Jesse Nelson, Kalie Anderson, and Tim Schroeder) for their efforts. We are in the midst of calving and by the time you read this we will be nearly 85% done.

There are also a number of research projects that all of us at the CREC livestock unit will be beginning shortly. This includes work that is funded by the North Dakota Corn Utilization Council and the North Dakota Soybean Council.  We are also collaborating with a number of universities around the country on a project evaluating artificial insemination practices.

Caring for livestock isn’t an 8-5 job, and being in livestock research sometimes makes it a bit more challenging.  Thanks, Livestock Unit crew, for all your hard work and effort.
