Drovers is proud to be hosting Cowboy College on Sept. 7-8, in Dodge City, Kan. The two day meeting will offer an educational opportunity designed specifically for feedlot crews.

From pen riders to the processing team there will be plenty of chances to learn about best management practices and animal welfare.

Nationally recognized veterinarians Tom Noffsinger, Dan Thomson and Mike Apley will offer their expertise in a variety of topics, specifically animal health and handling, which are top of mind for cattlemen.

With the ongoing volatility in cattle markets now is the time to invest in your team’s knowledge.
