The CREC’s virtual beef production field day will go live July 14.

North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC) is holding its annual field day virtually this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re eager to use this new approach to still get the latest research and information to producers,” says Karl Hoppe, Extension livestock systems specialist at the center. “Plus, they’ll be able to watch all the videos on their own time and as many times as they want.”

Prerecorded videos on beef production, agronomy, horticulture and organic/sustainable agriculture will go live July 14. Anyone can view them from a smartphone, laptop or computer at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/CarringtonREC.

  • Impacts of trace mineral supplements on preweaning and postweaning beef calf performance - Bryan Neville, CREC animal scientist
  • Alternative grains for feedlot cattle - Wayde Rodehorst, CREC research specialist
  • Alternative roughages for beef cattle - Rebecca Moore, NDSU Animal Sciences Department graduate student
  • Update on the Dakota Feeder Calf Show - Hoppe
