Seven cattle feeder clinics scheduled in late February

Feb. 7, 2014 | 0 comments

MADISON

Seven cattle feeding clinics have been scheduled around the state by the University of Wisconsin-Extension Service's Livestock Team for the last week of February. The program, which is scheduled to run for just over two hours, is designed for feeders of both beef and dairy cattle, agricultural professionals, and educators.

The series will start on Monday, Feb. 24 with an afternoon session at Monroe, followed by afternoon and evening sessions respectively at Marion and Waldo on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

On Wednesday, Feb. 26, there will be a morning meeting at Montello and an evening one at Withee. The meeting at Montello will be followed by presentations on grazing in the early afternoon. The series concludes on Thursday, Feb. 27 with a day session at Mondovi and an evening one at Sparta.

At each session, the host county Extension Service livestock or agriculture agent will give a presentation on the role of bedding on cattle performance and economics.

Extension Service livestock facilities specialist Dave Kammel will show examples of dairy barn remodeling projects with an emphasis on ventilation, feed storage and mixing, feeding systems, and user-friendly and efficiency traits of those systems.

Iowa State University beef specialist Darrell Busby, now on emeritus status, will discuss the factors that affect the profitability of raising feeder cattle. He will share the results of a study that tracked the performance of thousands of cattle over several years and will identify the traits that animals in the top one-third of the profitability range had in common.

For more information on the locations and time for check-in and the meal, visit the Wisconsin Beef Information website at http://fyi.uwex.edu/wbic. Registrations are being handled by the Extension Service office in the host county. At Marion, the Equity livestock auction barn is also taking reservations.

Depending on the site, the registration fee is $15 or $10. At Sparta and Monroe, there will be no cost thanks to contributions from local sponsors.
