Beef meeting planned for Badger
Cow calf and feedlot operators continue to deal with drought related issues. ISU Extension and the Iowa Beef Center have been and will continue to offer a series of educational opportunities to address these issues. Drought – “A Game Changer for Beef Operations” Strategies to Move Forward meetings will be held at the Badger Community Building on Thursday, Nov. 15, from 6:30-9 p.m.
“These fall meetings will fo-cus on managing feed costs and alternative feeds for winter feeding of the cow herd or feedlot,” said Russ Euken, Extension Beef Field Specialist. “Developing feeding programs that utilize available feeds and keep feed costs in check is the goal.”
There will be a $10 person fee payable at the door to cover refreshments and other miscellaneous cost.
