Cattle feeders workshop series slated for Feb. 13-15

UW Extension
Cattle feeders workshop series slated for Feb. 13-15 will be held at four different locations.

The Cattle Feeders Workshop Series will take place in four locations throughout Wisconsin. This year’s topics will include; changes to antibiotic use and availability, updates on implant use, market outlooks for the coming year and how stockmanship and handling facilities can impact animal performance. The workshops will prepare cattle feeders for the upcoming year.

The Annual Extension Cattle Feeders Workshop contains information for beef and dairy cattle feeders/finishers, and related allied industries. Attending the workshop will also earn people who are BQA certified one continuing ed credit towards their next re-certification. Participants will receive a copy of the BQA Feedlot Self-Assessment Guide for identifying strengths and areas for improvement on their operations.
