The 2009 Range Beef Cow Symposium, hosted by University of Wyoming, will be held Dec. 1-3, at the Casper Event Center, in Casper, Wyo. The event is a bi-annual educational event designed as in-service training for cow-calf ranchers. It will feature well-known speakers who will provide updates on production topics in the areas of beef industry issues, genetics, reproduction, range and forage management, cattle health, beef nutrition and more.

This year's event marks the 41st year for the Range Beef Cow Symposium. The event regularly attracts up to 900 ranchers and industry-affiliated people and includes a two-and-a-half day educational program, bull-pen sessions with the speakers each evening and a trade show with displays from the beef industry.

The symposium is a joint effort of the Extension Services from ColoradoStateUniversity, University of Wyoming, University of Nebraska and South DakotaStateUniversity. Mark your calendars and watch for further information.
