Range Beef Cow Symposium set

The Range Beef Cow Symposium brings together leading experts and producers from across the country to address topics on cattle markets, nutrition, breeding, reproduction, and health, plus many current issues facing cattlemen such as effects of current policy and trade issues.

All producers are invited to attend this three-day symposium held at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City, S.D., Dec. 3-5, 2013.


Jim Robb, director of the Livestock Marketing Information Center from Denver, is extremely well versed in cattle markets and factors that influence our markets. Robb has the ability to take all the factors that affect our market into consideration as he looks at the potential future market. Perhaps, most importantly, he boils it down into terms that are easy to understand and apply.

A producer panel of Ed Blair, Chip Ramsey and James Sewell will visit about increasing profitability by managing cow costs on their ranches. These producers have years of experience dealing with volatile prices, rising input costs, and challenging environmental conditions.
