UNL Beef Feedlot School planned for Mitchell and another Nebraska spot

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will be offering a Beef Feedlot School at Mitchell and another Nebraska location in September.

Feedlot employees in the panhandle are encouraged to attend the event on Sept. 18th at the Scotts Bluff County fairgrounds in Mitchell. The goal of this program is to assist with the training of feedlot employees in the areas of animal health and feeding.

First, extension veterinarians from UNL will discuss "Why antibiotics do not always work" and explain the difference in calving feedlot heifers or cows when the primary focus is on the mature animal. Second, Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) principles will be discussed with an emphasis on conducting Feedlot Assessments. Finally, animal feeding and nutrition topics will be presented.

The program will start with registration at 1 p.m. and adjourn at 5 p.m. For more information or to pre-register for either site please contact Matt Luebbe (mluebbe2@unl.edu) at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center, phone 308-632-1260. The registration fee is $10.

If employees are unable to attend the school in Mitchell, the feedlot school also will be offered Sept. 16 at Mead, in the Agricultural Research and Development Center.
