Beef Improvement Federation meeting still on track

With the recent devastation in Oklahoma due to the tornadoes of last week, many individuals participating in the Beef Improvement Federation Research Symposium and Meeting are wondering if plans have been changed for the annual event June 12 to 15 in Oklahoma City.

“None of the conference areas were affected,” said Megan Rolf, a professor at Oklahoma State University and a BIF symposium coordinator. “We’re completely on schedule, with no changes for the conference at this point.”

Themed “Where Profit and Progress Intersect,” this year’s program will bring together industry professionals, producers and researchers to discuss current issues facing the beef industry. Among those issues, speakers will tackle the crossbreeding vs. straight-breeding debate, as well as using genetic tools to address environmental challenges and cow herd efficiency.

Due to disaster relief personnel moving to the area to aid residents, booking rooms early is encouraged.

“The blocks have all been released at the hotels at this point,” Rolf stated.

However, if individuals looking to make reservations call soon, rooms may still be available in the Marriott block. To inquire about rooms call Jamie Harris, not reservations, at 405-605-7643.
