Beef Cattle Conference & Trade Show Registration

With the reduced national cattle inventory in 2022, cattle prices are expected to improve significantly in 2023. The 2023 Beef Cattle Conference presentations will focus on improving the health, performance, and profitability of cow-calf herds. Dr. Che Trejo, Merck Technical Services Veterinarian, will be the keynote speaker this year, and will discuss vaccinations to prevent key diseases, such as Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD), one of the most challenging diseases in the cattle industry, as well as treatment protocols for cattle that do get sick. Other presentations will include the role of nutrition management on herd health, forage fertility to improve forage nutrition, bull selection to enhance herd performance, and opportunities to increase income from your cow-calf operation.

2023 Beef Conference Agenda

In addition to the educational program, the conference will also feature a Trade Show of businesses and agencies that offer goods and services to cattle producers in the region. The representatives in attendance are trained professionals in specific areas of cattle, forage, and farm management. Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with so many resource people in one place.
