Register by Aug. 16 for beef conference

Conference is Aug. 29-30 in Manhattan, Kansas.

Organizers encourage those interested in attending the 2017 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle Conference to register soon. The event is Aug. 29-30 in Manhattan, Kan. Kansas State University extension beef specialist Sandy Johnson is host for this annual meeting.

“Cow-calf producers know that reproduction is the most economically important trait,” Johnson said. “Thus, reproductive management choices and implementation are critical to profitability.” 

The two-day program will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 29 and 8 a.m. to noon Aug. 30. After a steak dinner at the Stanley Stout Center Aug. 29, discussion groups will continue to address questions from the day. An optional lab session will be held the afternoon of Aug. 30.

Aug. 16 is the registration deadline for the regular $200 attendee fee. Students can register by that date for $100. Walk-in attendees will pay $250 and students $150. See links to both online and print registration forms on the conference website.

Johnson is a member of the Beef Reproduction Task Force, which includes reproductive physiologists from land grant universities who work together on reproductive management education. Garland Dahlke of Iowa Beef Center is an Iowa State University representative on the task force. The 2017 ARSBC program is provided through a joint effort of the Task Force and K-State Research and Extension. 

Those with questions on the conference content can contact Johnson.
