The U.S. beef cattle production journey

The Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition and Nebraska Extension are bringing Dr. Dan Thomson, a third-generation bovine veterinarian and host of a nationally aired veterinary television show in its seventh season on RFD TV entitled “Doc Talk,” to speak at eight locations across Nebraska. Topics will include:

· Understanding the One Beef concept and beef retailer objectives

· How communication between segments can improve profitability

· Future trends in beef cattle health and well-being management

· Preparing cattle for a change of address

Cost is $15, which covers the cost of the meal. The Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition (NGLC) will pick up the cost of all student registrations. Pre-registration is required by Nov. 7 to reserve a meal by calling the Nebraska Extension office indicated. Registrations will be taken until full.
