(Neb.)-UNL Beef Feedlot School Planned For Feedlot Employees

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 09/05/2013 11:45 AM

(MITCHELL)-Feedlot employees are encouraged to attend a Beef Feedlot School in Mitchell this month. The event is sponsored by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with the goal of helping train feedlot employees in the areas of animal health and feeding. 
            Feedlot employees throughout the Panhandle are encouraged to attend the event on Wednesday, September 18th at the Scotts Bluff County fairgrounds in Mitchell.
            Extension veterinarians from UNL will discuss why antibiotics don’t always work and explain the difference in calving feedlot heifers or cows when the primary focus is on the mature animal. Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) principles will also be discussed with an emphasis on conducting feedlot assessments, and animal feeding and nutrition topics will also be presented.
            The program will start with registration at 1:00 p.m. and conclude at 5:00 p.m. The registration fee is $10. For more information or to pre-register, contact Matt Luebbe at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center at 308-632-1260 or mluebbe2@unl.edu.
            If employees are unable to attend the school in Mitchell, the feedlot school also will be offered Monday, September 16th, at the Agricultural Research and Development Center in at Mead.
