UNL programs for livestock producers will cover animal welfare

Advertisement

Nebraska

As the world population continues to grow, safe and wholesome food production remains a top priority. It is essential that livestock producers make themselves familiar with the perceptions and perspectives of animal welfare in relation to consumers, retailers, and advocacy groups. Four educational programs for livestock producers will be held across Nebraska to address these issues. In addition, these educational programs will provide information on the most current industry issues.

Dates and locations for the educational programs are as follows:

--Feb. 6, West Point;

--Feb. 7, Lincoln;

--Feb. 8, Kearney; and

--Feb. 9, Gering.

The educational programs are designed to give livestock producers the knowledge needed to continue to do what they do best--feed the world. Registration begins at 9:30 am and the program runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Early bird registration (before Feb. 1) is $50 per person and $25 for each person from the same operation; registration at the door is $60 per person, and $30 for each additional person from the same operation. Price includes meal, break, and proceedings.

These educational programs are being sponsored by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension. Speakers include: Candace Croney, Purdue University; Dan Thompson and Glynn Tonsor, both from Kansas State University; and Jim Robb from the Livestock Marketing Information Center. For more information contact one of the following UNL Extension educators, or visit their county website for the program brochure: Lindsay Chichester, Richardson County, 402-245-4324, richardson.unl.edu; Denny Bauer, Brown, Keya Paha and Rock counties, 800-634-8951, bkr.unl.edu; or Troy Walz, Custer County, 308-872-6831, custer.unl.edu.
