ORANGE CITY, Iowa – The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Dairy Team monthly webinar series will continue on Wednesday, Sept. 14, from noon to 1 p.m. The program will feature Derrell Peel from Oklahoma State University and Brandon Peterson from Trans Ova.

Peel holds the Charles Breedlove Professorship of Agribusiness in the Department of Agricultural Economics and has served as the extension livestock marketing specialist at Oklahoma State University since 1989. His extension programs focus on livestock market situation and outlook and marketing and risk management education for producers. Peel will present on how declining beef cow numbers may affect prices dairy producers receive for feeders and replacement heifers.

Brandon Peterson is director of sales at Trans Ova Genetics, where he leads a sales team to continue Trans Ova’s impact of advanced reproductive technologies on the beef and dairy sectors, both domestically and internationally. He will help producers understand the dairy beef opportunities and how they can improve margins from the calves.

Peterson grew up on a diversified livestock farm in southeast South Dakota. He graduated from South Dakota State University in 2000. Upon graduation, he worked for Land O Lakes and Farmland Feeds and Hubbard Feeds, and also served in the feed industry as a private consultant.

Peterson is also the owner and manager of Peterson Angus, a 250 head registered Angus operation near Alcester, South Dakota.

Producers, dairy consultants, and industry representatives are encouraged to attend the webinar. There is no fee for the program, but preregistration is requested at https://go.iastate.edu/2BMKYV. Attendees should log on before noon, as the program will start promptly at noon. There will be a question-and-answer session after the presentation.
