Event Details

MIDWEST COW-CALF

SYMPOSIUM

Expanding the Cowherd - The Confinement Option

Are you considering an expansion of the cow herd to help meet the demand for Beef?  Are you looking for a revenue source within the Beef Industry that will allow the next generation a chance to come back to the farm? With less grazing land available, increased cost of land ownership and surplus feedstuffs in the cornbelt; now may be the time to consider Cow-Calf confinement or semi-confinement.  This Symposium is designed to allow you the chance to gain the insight needed to consider cow-calf confinement as a viable beef production model for the future.
