News from Iowa Beef Center
Grassroots Grazing is a new grazing education and networking program for young and beginning graziers. It will be offered by the Iowa Beef Center with sessions in five locations beginning this month.
The Greenhorn Grazing short course offers livestock producers with an interest in beginning or transitioning grazing practices the opportunity to hone their skills. The northeast Iowa five-part series is underway.
As the beef feedlot industry in Iowa continues to grow and improve, some producers are considering their options for expanding or new feedlot facilities. That's why IBC and ISU Extension and Outreach have completely revised the Beef Feedlot Systems Manual and developed a calculator to help users estimate costs for alternatives for expanding or new facility construction. Electronic versions of both are free.
The Estrus Synchronization tool has been updated to v15 and is now available for free download on the IBC website. See more information, including "how to use" videos and a link to register for the program. (newly updated 7-3-15)
