Oklahoma State University, in collaboration with the Beef Reproduction Task Force, will be hosting the 2014 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle Conference (ARSBC).   The meeting will be held on the OSU Stillwater campus from October 8-9, 2014. 

The conference is held annually, and rotates to a different state each year.  This year, we will focus on a variety of applied subjects for producers, veterinarians, and beef industry stakeholders.  The conference program includes a variety of educational programs from basic cattle reproduction and artificial insemination to the latest advances in embryo transfer and reproductive technologies.  The complete schedule of events is posted at www.beefextension.com/genetics along with a link to the registration site.

Key goals of the Beef Reproduction Task Force include promoting widespread adoption of reproductive technologies among cow-calf producers, educating producers in management considerations that will increase the likelihood of successful breeding of animals through artificial insemination, and educating producers about marketing options to capture benefits that result from use of improved reproductive techniques.
