Reproduction Strategies in Beef Cattle
LiveAuction.tv and Angus Productions Inc. will provide live video stream, post-event coverage of Dec. 3-4 symposium.
Cattlemen gathered Dec. 3-4 at the The Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Sioux Falls, S.D., to focus on how cattle producers can utilize advancing technologies to improve herd reproductive efficiencies, profitability and the end product — beef. The 2012 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle (ARSBC) program is sponsored by the Beef Reproductive Task Force, South Dakota State University (SDSU) and iGrow in cooperation with the University of Missouri Conference Office.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to hear 27 speakers from across the U.S. and Canada discuss topics including how to profit from implementing these technologies, and the latest research in the fields of reproduction, nutrition and genetics,” said event coordinator, George Perry, associate professor and SDSU Extension beef reproduction specialist.
This program is geared to veterinarians and producers. All speakers have been charged with addressing how to implement what is discussed within your cattle operation. And large tradeshow will accompany the meeting, giving attendees a chance to visit with sponsors/ (click here to see sponsors).
