With drought, lack of hay and volatile market prices, North Dakota cattle producers are faced with difficult choices.

One option is to add value to the calves by feeding them in North Dakota instead of selling them. To address this issue, the North Dakota State University Extension Service is holding a series of local seminars on feeding and backgrounding calves and cow feed management. 

Topics for the meeting are:

Feeding Calf-growing Rations – Karl Hoppe, Extension Livestock Systems Specialist, NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center

Backgrounding Calf Budgets – John Dhuyvetter, Extension Livestock Systems Specialist, NDSU North Central Research Extension Center

Cow Herd Feed Management – Janna Kincheloe, Extension Livestock Specialist, NDSU Hettinger Research Extension Center

Cattle Price Outlook and Livestock Risk Protection Insurance - Tim Petry,  NDSU Livestock Economist 

Local Issues for Cattle Feed – Crystal Schaunaman, McIntosh County Extension Agent
