The seminar will be held Jan. 11 in Ashland, El Dorado, Phillipsburg and Manhattan. All will start with registration at 4 p.m. (program beginning at 4:30 p.m.) and end at 8:30 p.m. Presentations will be a combination of webinar delivery and local speakers.

Local speakers will be present at each location to give presentations on winter ration development, using a computerized ration balancing program and cow/calf health management, focusing on vaccination programs.
