As cow-calf and feedlot operators continue to deal with drought related issues, ISU Extension and Outreach and the Iowa Beef Center continue to offer educational opportunities to address ongoing and emerging issues. “Drought – a Game Changer for Beef Operations” is the title of meetings to be held through Dec. 6 across Iowa.

“These fall meetings focus on managing feed costs and alternative feeds for fall and winter feeding for the cow herd or feedlot use,” said Russ Euken, ISU Extension and Outreach beef specialist. “Developing feeding programs that use available feeds and keep feed costs in check is the goal.”
