Beef and Basketball Event Combines Information and Entertainment



AMES, Iowa — Beef producers can get their fill of timely beef information and ISU men's basketball at the second "Beef and Basketball" event in Ames on Jan. 28. Sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health, Iowa Beef Center (IBC), Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach and Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, the event includes three educational presentations, lunch from Hickory Park and attendance at the ISU men’s basketball game versus University of Kansas.

Stephanie Hansen of ISU’s animal science department will talk about managing high sulfur diets, and J.P. Pollreisz from Pfizer Animal Health Technical Services will present two topics, “Challenging BRD Treatment Paradigm” and “Winning by a Nose.”

ISU Extension beef program specialist Joe Sellers said the cost is just $15 per person, but those interested should act quickly because of limited availability.

“Depending on registration numbers, there may be a limit of two tickets per operation,” he said.

People can RSVP with their local Pfizer representative or through IBC. They also can call Sellers at 641-203-1270 or Dan Loy with IBC at 515-294-1058.

The program brochure is available on the IBC website, www.iowabeefcenter.org.
