Registration is now open for a webinar that will help Kansas beef cattle producers prepare to manage and reduce the impacts of drought and reduced forage availability on cow herds.
The webinar will be hosted by the Kansas State University (K-State) Animal Sciences and Industry Department and K-State Research and Extension via Zoom on Thursday, July 9, 2020, at noon CDT.
“As the saying goes, failing to plan, is planning to fail.” says Dr. Sandy Johnson, K-State beef extension specialist. “This webinar is being conducted to help cow-calf producers evaluate the options they have to make strategic adjustments in response to reduced forage availability. We want producers to be prepared to take advantage of opportunities that may arise given current resources, markets and weather.”
The program will feature strategic reduction of grazing pressure, drought supplementation of cows, early weaned calf nutrition and management, as well as calf health considerations. These topic areas will be addressed by members of the K-State Beef Extension Team.
