NDSU Co-hosting Cattlemen’s Boot Camp

The program will give participants hands-on experience.

North Dakota State University is co-hosting a Cattlemen’s Boot Camp on campus June 25-26.

The program is open to all seedstock and commercial cattle producers.

The future of the beef industry, quality and yield grade, and range management are some of the topics that will be discussed during the 1½-day session. Presenters for the event are NDSU faculty and American Angus Association staff. The association and the Angus Foundation are co-hosts.
