Workshops will focus on advanced technologies to optimize reproductive success; calving season preparation; beginning to farm/ranch with a niche in mind; and beef carcass cut-outs and evaluation.
Conference registration is $60 before July 31 and $100 after. It includes a bound departmental report, conference presentation summaries, content for afternoon workshops and lunch.
