Podcasting, webinars, webcasts. Do these sound like they belong in the same discussion as beef cattle? With the enhancements in technology that are occurring, this terminology is finding its way into the everyday workplace. Educational programming through the Internet is becoming another way to provide information to clientele.
University of Wisconsin-Extension Beef Cattle Specialist Dr. Jeff Lehmkuhler, along with county Extension agriculture agents, are offering a pilot beef distance education program. Dates and topics are:
-- Feb. 28: Basic Nutrition for the Cow-Calf Herd
-- March 27: Estrus Synchronization Protocols
-- April 17: Program Requirements for Preconditioned Feeder Cattle Sale.
If you would like additional information about participating in this educational series, contact your local county extension office or Lehmkuhler at 608-263-7761.
