Iowa

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and the University of Nebraska are teaming up to offer a feedlot roundtable session at six Iowa locations on Feb. 21, from 12:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. Iowa State Extension Beef Specialist Russ Euken said the feedlot roundtable sessions are offered annually in Nebraska for feedlot operators and interested agribusiness people.

"ISU Extension and Outreach and University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension have a cooperative agreement that provides for the sharing of livestock educational resources and programs," Euken said. "The Internet allows us to offer this popular Nebraska roundtable session at selected Iowa locations. The speakers and subject matter are sure to draw interest from our state's beef community."

Temple Grandin from Colorado State University is the featured speaker from the Nebraska program site. She'll speak about animal welfare challenges for the beef feedlot industry. She's followed by Jim Robb, economist and director of the Livestock Marketing Information Center in Colorado, who will present a market outlook and information on issues related to formula pricing for fed cattle. This presentation is prerecorded for the program.

The afternoon's schedule concludes with an overview of beef feedlot industry related research and projects at Iowa State University, by Dan Loy and Stephanie Hansen. More information, including a registration form, is available on the event brochure.

The $10 fee covers proceedings, meeting costs and refreshments, and is payable at the door. However, you're asked to preregister no later than Feb. 19 at the location you will attend to ensure adequate materials and refreshments.
