January

Register now to hear one of the most respected cattle economists in the country share his outlook on beef prices at the 2020 Driftless Region Beef Conference, Jan. 30-31 at the Grand River Conference Center in Dubuque. Dr. Derrell Peel, livestock economist at Oklahoma State University, will wrap up the conference with his predictions of the cattle market for 2020 and beyond.

Beef cow-calf producers recognize the importance of staying informed on all aspects of their operation, and the second of a four-part webinar series from Iowa Beef Center will help them do just that. The session is set for Wed. Jan. 22, from 6 to 8 pm, and focuses on calving time management. Iowa State University extension program specialist Beth Reynolds said the series is intended to provide timely topics for beef cow management and the opportunity to access the information by joining the webinar at their own location or at one of nine host sites.

Dairy and beef producers are invited to attend one of two advanced calving clinics in mid-February in Edgewood and Dysart. Iowa State University Extension beef specialist Denise Schwab said anyone who attends, regardless of their experience with calving out cows, will learn something new.

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will host Boots in the Barn, a program for women beef producers, in February and March in Independence. Boots in the Barn is a three-part series for women involved in their beef cattle operation. Program dates are Feb. 27, March 5 and March 12. The first session features Iowa State University Extension beef specialist Denise Schwab who will provide information on the cost of production and winter feeding the cow herd.
