Upcoming Cow/Calf Days Seminar and Trade Show in Le Center

ST. PETER — The University of Minnesota Beef Team is hosting the annual Cow/Calf Days Seminar Tour and Trade Show at 10 locations across the state in January and February.

This event has been held for over 40 years and continues to be the leading information, technology, and research outlet for cow/calf producers in the state of Minnesota.

The 2017 event will feature information on managing scours in calves, results of a U of M study on the impact of different hay rake designs, grazing management, and results of a U of M study on the impact of hay feeder design on hay waste.

Updates from the Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Association will also highlight the event, and the corresponding tradeshow will feature vendors with new information, technology, and products with a wide-array of practical uses for the operators in the cow-calf sector.

The seminar and trade show will be at 9:30 a.m., Friday, Jan. 27 at the 4-H Family Center on the Le Sueur County Fairgrounds in Le Center.  The program is directed at cow/calf producers, allied industry representatives, and is open to the public.
