Northern Panhandle UNL Extension hosting Beef Cattle Nutritional Management Meetings at Lakeside and Crawford

Nebraska Extension in the northern Panhandle will host a pair of meetings on beef cattle nutritional management Feb. 8 at Lakeside and Crawford.

The title of the program will be “Shaving Feed Costs while Maintaining Production in the Cowherd—Knowing the Nutrient Requirements of Heifers vs. Cows, Lactation vs. Gestation.” It will be presented by Karla Jenkins, cow/calf specialist for University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

The cost of the meeting will be $10 to help defray meal costs.

There will be two meetings Feb. 8. The first will start at 12:30 p.m. with a meal at the Lakeside Fellowship Hall and conclude by 2:30 p.m. The second meeting will be at the Tailgate Bar in Crawford with a meal at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting to follow.

Learn how to supplement and meet the nutrient requirements of the cattle without overfeeding, have a meal and visit with your neighbor before the calving season gets fully underway.

Please RSVP to Jack Arterburn at Sheridan County Extension 308-327-2312 to help determine the meal count. However, walk-ins are welcome.
