The Iowa Beef Center’s upcoming webinar aims to help farmers have a smooth calving season by offering preparation tips.

AMES, Iowa – The Iowa Beef Center wants beef cow-calf producers to be informed on all aspects of their operations, so they are making it convenient for producers to attend the winter cow webinar series. The second of the four-part webinar series is set for Wednesday, Jan. 22, from 6 to 8 p.m.; participants have the choice of joining the webinar at their own location or at one of nine host sites.

Beth Reynolds, beef specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, said the series is intended to provide timely topics for beef cow management and the second webinar focuses on calving time management.

Grant Dewell, Iowa State University extension beef veterinarian, will discuss calving season preparations and dealing with dystocia. Chris Clark, DVM and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach beef specialist, will highlight tips for managing newborn calves.

There is no cost to attend an in-person location or to view the webinar at home. Those planning to attend an in-person location are encouraged to preregister by calling the host location.
