The latest tips for improving the health of cattle in feedlots and the profits for owners will be discussed at a series of roundtable sessions across Nebraska. One of those sessions will be in Siouxland. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension offices will hold a beef feedlot roundtable in West Point on February 14th at the Nielsen Community Center. Forums will also be held in Lexington on February 15th and in Bridgeport on February 16th.

Registration is from 7:45-8:15 a.m. with introduction and welcome at 8:15 by local extension personnel.

Experts from the beef industry and the university will discuss animal health and nutrition at the event. Other sessions will focus on feedlot economics and different feed options. The Nebraska Beef Council will give an update on new beef products and sponsor lunch.

Cost at the door will be $40. For more information contact Matt Luebbe at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center in Scottsbluff at 308-632-1397.
