Beef Scholar Seniors Organize Beef Summit Again

Beef Scholar Seniors Organize Beef Summit Again

UNL students cooperate with Nebraska Cattlemen to address timely industry issues.

University of Nebraska Beef Industry Scholar students have organized the fifth Annual Nebraska Beef Summit on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.  It will be held Nov. 8 at the UNL Animal Science Complex on the East Campus in Lincoln.

One of the responsibilities of the Nebraska Beef Industry Scholars senior class is to develop the summit agenda. They do so in cooperation with Nebraska Cattlemen.

The following is the list of topics on this year's agenda along with the scheduled speakers below the topic:

Cattle Numbers and the Market Outlook, Derrell Peel, agriculture economics Professor, Oklahoma State University.

Opportunities in the Beef Industry, a panel consisting of Patsy Houghton, owner and general manager of Heartland Cattle Company, McCook; Dave Goeller, farm transition specialist, UNL Department of Agriculture Economics; and Alan Janzen, owner and operator of Circle Five Cattle Company, Henderson.

Corn: Feed vs. Fuel, Steve Meyer, president and owner of Paragon Economics.

 2012 Farm Bill, Greg Doud, senior professional staff member, U.S. Senate Ag Committee.

The seminar will begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 4:00 p.m. Lunch will be catered on site by Skeeter Barnes and is included in the registration fee.

Keeping with the tradition of past annual summits, the Senior Beef Scholars have developed a program of strong speakers addressing current industry issues.

Space is limited. Registration deadline is Oct. 31. The cost of this program is $50, which will cover lunch, speaker costs and other expenses for the event.
