N.D. Angus University Roundup set

North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC) will host the North Dakota Angus University Roundup from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on March 10.

“For the past four summers, the North Dakota Angus University (NDAU) feedout project has provided cattle producers with a better understanding of how Angus-sired cattle from their operation perform in the feedlot,” says Chanda Engel, livestock research specialist at the center. “Producers also have received information on performance, feed intake, carcass characteristics and the potential profitability available through retained ownership.”

The NDAU Roundup is a classroom-based program aimed at providing future feedout consignors and others interested in the program with information on how the program functions. The Roundup also will provide past and potential consignors with specifics on how cattle in the program have performed, marketing insight and using genetics for reaching production targets.

Roundup presenters will include NDSU research and Extension staff and industry partners.

The presenters and their topics are:

NDAU program overview – Mike Wendel, North Dakota Angus Association president

NDAU cattle performance and research – Chanda Engel, NDSU CREC livestock research specialist

Using genetics to reach your production targets – Lauren L. Hulsman Hanna, NDSU Department of Animal Sciences assistant professor

Market outlook and risk management strategies – David Spickler, Standard Commodity Management

For more information, contact Engel at (701) 652-2951 or chanda.engel@ndsu.edu.

The Carrington Research Extension Center is 3.5 miles north of Carrington on U.S. Highway 281.
