Attend Husker Beef Nutrition Conference

Attend Husker Beef Nutrition Conference

Focus is on impact of high grain prices and research on receiving calves.

For beef producers, feed costs continue to be their biggest challenge. The impact of high-priced grain on production costs is one of the key topics at the Husker Beef Nutrition Conference, Oct. 28, in Mead.

Planned for the UNL Ag Research and Extension Center, the conference brings together leading researchers from UNL and other land-grant universities.

Derrell Peel of Oklahoma State University leads the discussion on grain prices, and the impact of ethanol's corn demand on those prices. Galen Erickson, UNL feedlot specialist, will examine options for replacing corn in feedlots, plus review other UNL research data.

Another timely topic is how the Southern Plains drought will change the structure of the beef industry.

Here's a list of other topics:

Forage growing systems research.

Receiving calves—health impact on performance.

Grain adaptation research using byproducts.

Molecular techniques to advance ruminant nutrition.

Registration deadline is Oct 24. Fee is $30 and can be paid at the site.

For more information, contact Erickson at 402-472-6402 or Matt Luebbe at 308-632-1397.
