A one-day “Beef Facilities Conference” will be held Nov. 21 to share current research findings and discuss building management and cattle performance. The conference will be held at the Best Western Plus Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
The Feedlot Forum 2013 will be held at a new location, Terrace View Event Center just south of Sioux Center, on Jan. 22 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The forum will address a variety of new beef issues– animal welfare audits, new feed processing methods, global trade and formula pricing – facing feedlot producers in 2013.
High feed costs in 2011, a smaller calf crop and a slow economy will linger into 2012; these and new factors affecting profitability will be the focus of Feedlot Forum 2012 on Jan. 17 in Sioux Center.
