“Strategies that reduce input costs and add value to your cattle help improve the profit potential of the cattle operation,” says Patrick Davis MU Extension Regional Livestock Field Specialist.  Therefore, MU Extension is cooperating with Boehringer Ingelheim to provide two cattle producer workshops that will educate cattle producers on strategies that will add value to their cattle and reduce input costs, which leads to improved profit potential.

Both workshops will begin at 6:00 p. m.  The first workshops will take place on Thursday, Feb. 20, in the Stockton Christian Church Activity Center. The second workshop will take place on Feb. 24 at the American Legion Hall in Lockwood.

Jeff Schoen with Boehringer Ingelheim will discuss cattle health management to add value to cattle.  Davis will discuss management strategies to reduce input cost and add value to the cattle operation.

These workshops are free to the public.  Dinner will be provided at each workshop thanks to our partner Boehringer Ingelheim.  To attend either workshop register by contacting the Cedar County MU Extension Center at (417) 276-3313.  Please register for the workshop in Stockton by Feb. 13 or the workshop in Lockwood by Feb. 21.
