K-State vet college to host cow-calf conference


Kansas

Kansas State University's College of Veterinary Medicine will host a cow-calf conference for veterinarians and producers to advance their knowledge of reproduction, calving, and calf care in breeding herds.

The conference is specifically geared toward simultaneous exchange of information among ranch owners, ranch hands, and veterinarians. University faculty and staff will present topics at the forefront of those who manage breeding herds.

The latest information on supplementing cows and heifers on moderate to poor quality winter forage, selection to improve feed efficiency, management plans to prevent calf scours, current thinking on parasite control and use of a new BVD management tool in cow-calf herds are some of the presentation topics scheduled.

The conference will also feature a look into a better understanding of nutrition, breeding, calving, and disease management for application to the breeding herd.

All lectures will be held in Frick Auditorium in Mosier Hall of Kansas State University on Jan. 11, 2013, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Contact hours for veterinarians are 7.5 hours.

For more information or to register for the conference, contact the office of events at 785-532-4528 or online at www.k-state.edu/vet/cowcalf13.
