Cattlemen’s Web Updates Address Key Fall Topics

The NDSU Extension Service is offering online video programs to address cattle issues.

North Dakota State University Extension Service agents and specialists will post a series of short video programs online in October and November to address a number of cattle marketing, feeding and management concerns and issues as they arise.

“Cattle producers with high-speed Internet connections utilizing the Web for market and weather information should find it convenient to listen to the weekly update on their schedule,” says John Dhuyvetter, area Extension specialist at NDSU’s North Central Research Extension Center (NCREC) at Minot.

The Cattlemen’s Web Update programs will be available on the NCREC’s home page at http://www.ag.ndsu.nodak.edu/minot by clicking on the Cattlemen’s Web Update link. Programs will be approximately 10 minutes long and updated each Tuesday morning. The first program will be available Oct.14. It will address concerns on silage and utilization of corn for feed.

Future programs will respond to producer questions and industry happenings and address key issues such as the hay market, county-of-origin labeling requirements, late-season grazing alternatives, Conservation Reserve Program hay and alternative feeds, backgrounding budgets and marketing calves.

“We hope the Cattlemen’s Web Updates will be a useful means to keep producers posted with information on issues while busy with fall tasks of working cattle, moving feed and preparing facilities,” Dhuyvetter says.
