The Iowa Beef Center wants cow-calf producers to be informed on all aspects of their operations and is making it convenient for producers to attend this winter’s cow webinar series. The second of the four-part IBC webinar series is 6 to 8 p.m. Jan 22.
Participants have the choice of joining the webinar at their own location at home or at one of nine host sites across the state.
Beth Reynolds, ISU Extension beef specialist, says the series provides timely topics for beef cow management “and this second webinar on Jan. 22 focuses on calving time management.”
Grant Dewell, ISU Extension beef veterinarian, will discuss calving season preparations and dealing with dystocia. Chris Clark, also a veterinarian and an ISU Extension beef specialist, will highlight tips for managing newborn calves.
