A full house gathered in Brookings, SD for the 2009 Starting Strong Feedlot Seminar sponsored by Cargill Animal Nutrition and South Dakota State University on Aug. 11. A dynamic panel of speakers beefed up the event including: SDSU’s Dr. Ben Holland, Cargill’s Dr. Pablo Guiroy, Pfizer’s Gerald Stokka, DVM, Kansas State University’s Mike Apley, DVM, Randy Black of Cattle-Fax and SDSU’s Dr. Robbi Pritchard.

Pritchard opened up the event with his speech titled, “Effects of stress in receiving cattle and the role of nutrition in receiving diets (by-product usage, sulfur issues and feed additives).” For any producer with feeder cattle, this workshop definitely provided an abundance of information, and Pritchard’s speech set the pace for the rest of the day. Pritchard gave producers advice for dealing with cattle stress and stimulating the brain, rumen and tissue for optimal calf performance.
