N.D. Angus University Roundup Set

Learn how the program has benefited producers.

North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center will hold the North Dakota Angus University Roundup from 1 to 3 p.m. Feb. 12.

“For the past three summers, the North Dakota Angus University (NDAU) feedout project has provided cattle producers with a better understanding of how Angus-sired cattle from their operation perform in the feedlot,” says Chanda Engel, livestock research specialist at the center. “Producers also have received information on performance, feed intake, carcass characteristics and the potential profitability available through retained ownership.”

The NDAU Roundup is a classroom-based program aimed at providing future feedout consignors and others interested in the program with information on how the program functions. The Roundup also will provide past and potential consignors with specifics on how cattle in the program have performed and insight into using carcass expected progeny differences for making future bull selections.

Roundup presenters will include research, Extension and farm business management staff from the Carrington Research Extension Center.

The event is free of charge and registration is not necessary.

For more information, contact Engel at (701) 652-2951 or chanda.engel@ndsu.edu.

The Carrington Research Extension center is 3.5 miles north of Carrington on U.S. Highway 281.

The next NDAU program will be held in June. Fifteen producers and a total of 480 cattle have participated in the program.
