The North Dakota Livestock Alliance will hold the fifth annual Livestock Summit on Jan. 30 in Fargo. The day will feature breakout sessions, speakers and a trade show.

“We’re looking forward to hosting producers and industry members for another great year of networking and education,” says Amber Wood, executive director of NDLA.

“The full trade show will feature a variety of booths, including construction companies, engineers — anything you need to expand or start a new livestock facility,” she says. “We’ll also see our commodity organizations and entities who are key supporting members for our farmers and ranchers to meet their livestock diversification goals be a part of the show.”

Breakout sessions will cover a variety of livestock-focused topics, including financial programs for livestock producers, prioritizing animal health and utilizing liquid manure on cropland.

“Talking about the importance liquid manure plays on the crop acres in the state will be a big topic during the summit,” Wood says. “Many people don’t fully understand the benefits liquid manure application gives to crop production and the high-quality fertilizer it is.”

Breakout speakers will include North Dakota State Veterinarian Ethan Andress and Kevin Sonsalla from the U.S. Department of Commerce.
