Sustainable Use of Crop Residues on Cow/Calf and Yearling Operations Conference

Sustainable Use of Crop Residues on Cow/Calf and Yearling Operations Conference

June 2013

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension held a conference/webinar on sustainable use of crop residues for cow/calf and yearling operations on June 10, 2013. Historic high crop prices and drought conditions have contributed to record high forage prices. These conditions are encouraging both cattle producers and crop farmers to consider the value and use of crop residue in beef production.

The webinar recording of each session of the conference is available below. In addition, PDF files of slide sets that were shared with participants are available below.
