Wide range of cattle industry topics at 2011 Range Beef Cow Symposium

David Ostdiek, Communications Associate, Panhandle Research and Extension Center

Cattle ranchers are a diverse lot with a common interest: producing and selling beef.

And that is the common theme of the presentations by more than two dozen speakers during the Range Beef Cow Symposium, Nov. 29 through Dec. 1 at Mitchell, NE.

But the individual topics are as diverse as the industry. They range from protecting the raw resources to selling the finished product, and include protecting pastures from drought; improving herd genetics; feeding and caring for animals; marketing and branding beef; passing the land on to the next generation; and all the art, science, politics and guessing involved in each of these.

The Range Beef Cow Symposium XXII is scheduled for Nov. 29 and 30 and Dec. 1 at the Mitchell Events Center at the Scotts Bluff County Fairgrounds. Evening “Bullpen” sessions will take place Tuesday and Wednesday at the Gering Civic Center.

The symposium is expected to attract cattle producers and industry people from Nebraska and several surrounding states. This year’s event will be mark the symposium’s return to western Nebraska after eight years in the fellow host states, Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota. The biannual event is sponsored by Extension programs at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Colorado State University, the University of Wyoming, and South Dakota State University. The event rotates among the four states.

In addition to the speakers, vendors from various segments of the livestock industry will have displays at the symposium: breed associations, feed companies, pharmaceutical providers, and equipment manufacturers.
