AMES, Iowa — Registration is now open for the 2023 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle Symposium set for Sept. 6-7 at the Little America Hotel and Resort in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Producers, veterinarians, artificial insemination technicians, students and others interested in beef cattle production are encouraged to attend.

“This is a producer-focused meeting that brings in speakers from across industry and academia to speak on topics relevant to the reproductive management of beef cattle and the implementation of reproductive technologies,” she said.

This year's presentation topics include estrus synchronization and artificial insemination, nutritional management for the cow herd, brucellosis, selecting for sires to perform at high altitudes, calving management, and bull development.
