The 2023 Beef Feedlot Roundtable Series is an event that you won’t want to miss! We encourage feedlot owners, managers, employees, and allied industry to join Nebraska Extension February 7-9th as we dive into a series of timely topics covering feedlot management. Highlights from the program include the use of roller compacted concrete, implications of increasing hot carcass weight, and new requirements on implanting with speakers from UNL Extension and producers. This year’s program offers a new hands-on component targeted toward feedlot employees, including processing equipment maintenance, euthanasia considerations, and pregnancy management in the feedlot covered by UNL veterinarians from Great Plains Veterinary Educational Center. Spanish translation will be available for the animal health hands-on portion.

Join us from 1-6 pm, with dinner to follow. Cost is $30 at the door.
