February 7, 7pm–9pmWhat
The 2017 Ohio Beef School webinar series continues in this second installment by exploring management of feeder cattle as they come from the cow and progress to the feedyard.
Dr. Francis Fluharty, research professor at Ohio State University’s Department of Animal Sciences, will compare grazing versus confinement growing systems for feeder cattle. Fluharty will evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of these two distinctly different management systems and explore how calf health and management impact the end product.
The final webinar on Feb. 28 will scrutinize the demands of the consumer and whether the entire production system – cow/calf through the feedyard and to the retailer – is meeting those demands and what it will take looking forward to achieve that goal.
The webinar will be broadcast live beginning at 7 p.m. from 24 host locations throughout Ohio as well as one in West Virginia. A list of the host locations and contact information is available.
