Register now for ‘Managing for Success’ beef seminars in South Dakota

Profit. That’s a word cattlemen would like to hear more often in connection with their herds.

“Managing for Success,” a seminar series focused on that very topic, is coming to South Dakota at the end of August.

“We’re excited to gather commercial cattlemen to talk about some new research and information that’s easy to apply on the ranch,” said Paul Dykstra, beef cattle specialist with Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB). “The meal and education cost no more than your time.”



Pfizer’s Animal Health and Animal Genetics divisions have teamed up with CAB to offer an afternoon program and steak supper at three South Dakota locations:

• Aug. 29 at Redstone Feeders in De Smet, starting at 2 p.m.



• Aug. 30 at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel in Aberdeen, starting at 2 p.m.

• Aug. 31 at the Mead County Community Hall in Union Center, starting at 3 p.m.

Larry Gran of Pfizer Animal Genetics will kick off the agenda with his discussion on the use and application of DNA technology for commercial cattlemen.

Dykstra will cover the impacts of health and genetics – particularly growth and carcass traits – on the value of calves and feeder cattle.

Pfizer’s Dr. Gerald Stokka will wrap up the sessions with his presentation on the growth enhancement of pasture cattle, including the effects of nutrition, implants, ionophores and parasites on growth and reproduction.

The De Smet location includes a tour of the hosting feedlot, and Aberdeen attendees will tour the Northern Beef Packers plant that is currently under construction.

“We hope producers will walk away with some new, practical information,” Dykstra said. “In today’s environment, every little detail matters to final profitability.”

Producers who would like to attend this educational forum should respond by Aug. 15, contacting their local Pfizer representative or CAB’s Marilyn Conley by phone 800-225-2333, Ext. 298, or e-mail mconley@certifiedangusbeef.com.
