Registration open for Beef Facilities Conference in SD
October 18, 2013
Brookings, S.D. – Several types of beef barns are becoming more common across the Upper Midwest. However, when it comes to deciding which one is right for their cattle operation many cattle producers still have questions regarding the cattle management, production impacts, manure management and air quality of each barn type.
SDSU Extension is hosting a one-day Beef Facilities Conference to help answer producers' questions. This conference will be held Nov. 21 at the Best Western Plus Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Sioux Falls. The conference runs from 9:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. The conference is a cooperative effort of South Dakota State University, Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach, University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Extension, USDA Agricultural Research Service and the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
The conference was developed for feedlot producers, beef consultants, building contractors, engineers and consultants, state and federal agency staff and extension and university professionals.
Conference information, registration materials and potential sponsorship are available on-line at http://www.aep.iastate.edu/facility/. Registration is $40 if registered by Nov. 14. Students receive a $15 discount. Fees will increase $20 after Nov. 14 for all participants.
