North Dakota State University is co-hosting a Cattlemen’s Boot Camp on campus June 25-26.
The program is open to all seedstock and commercial cattle producers.
The future of the beef industry, quality and yield grade, and range management are some of the topics that will be discussed during the 1½-day session. Presenters for the event are NDSU faculty and American Angus Association staff. The association and the Angus Foundation are co-hosts.
Tours of NDSU’s Beef Cattle Research Complex and the Ekre Ranch near Walcott also are scheduled during the event.
“This is a chance to be part of a really unique educational experience,” says Gerald Stokka, NDSU Extension livestock stewardship specialist and one of the program’s presenters. “This event includes giving participants hands-on learning experiences in evaluating carcasses in the NDSU Meat Lab and in range management at the Ekre Ranch.”
The $75 registration covers all meals and educational materials. Participants must make their own lodging arrangements. Area hotels are: Candlewood Suites, (701) 235-8200; Homewood Suites, (701) 235-3150; and Days Inn, (701) 232-0000.
