The Three-State Beef Conference has valuable resources for cattle farmers.

The 2020 Three-State Beef Conference is scheduled for Jan. 14, 15, and 16, with locations in Iowa, Missouri, and Nebraska. The Iowa session will take place Tuesday, Jan. 14, at the Warren Cultural Center, 154 Public Square, Greenfield. Sessions in Missouri and Nebraska follow on Jan. 15 and Jan. 16, respectively.

Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach beef specialist Erika Lundy said the program offers area beef producers the opportunity to visit with a forum of specialists focusing on improving profitability through breeding management decisions. “While it may seem pretty far down the road, it is not too early to start planning for next breeding season,” Lundy said. “Advanced preparation can help you set your cows up for reproductive success.”

Chris Clark, ISU Extension and Outreach beef specialist, said conference topics and speakers were specifically selected to focus on areas of importance to producers. “Every year the planning committee strives to select valuable topics and quality speakers to make the program helpful for producers,” Clark said. “This year the focus will be on breeding management, including the importance of nutrition relative to reproductive success as well as the value and effects of various available technologies.” The Conference will feature several sessions:

  • Pre-calving Nutritional Strategies: Am I Staying Ahead or Getting Behind? – Dr. Travis Mulliniks, range cow nutritionist, University of Nebraska—Lincoln.
  • Vaccines and Implants: Effects on Production and Reproduction – Dr. Craig Payne, extension veterinarian, University of Missouri Extension.
  • Reproductive Performance: Are You Leaving Money on the Table? – Dr. Jordan Thomas, beef reproduction specialist, University of Missouri Extension.

Registration will open at 5:30 p.m., with the program beginning at 6 p.m. The registration fee is $25 per person and includes the evening meal and copy of the proceedings. Pre-registrations are appreciated by Friday, Jan. 10, to help with meal planning and cost reductions. The conference brochure has agenda information and a registration form. RSVP by either calling the ISU Extension and Outreach Adair County office at (641)-743-8412 or email [email protected] The Adair County Cattlemen are a local sponsor for this event.
