Market, Climate, Health: Cattle Update Webinar Offered

BROOKINGS, S.D. – SDSU Extension is launching a webinar series titled “Market, Climate, Health: Cattle Update” aimed at cattle producers and industry experts. This series, conducted via Zoom, includes three one-hour sessions scheduled for June 4, 11, and 18, 2024, starting at 11 a.m. CDT / 10 a.m. MT.

The first session features Darren Clabo, who will discuss the critical role weather plays in agricultural management. “I really want everybody to become aware of these weather changes, climate changes, and how we manage for that,” said Sydney Vanderhoff, SDSU Extension Beef Nutrition Field Specialist. This proactive approach is essential, as “Management starts now for next winter.”

In the second webinar, Derrell Peel will tackle market conditions affecting cattle prices and potential strategies for producers. This discussion is timely, considering the ongoing volatility in cattle markets.

The final session will be led by Russ Daly, who will address prevalent health concerns in the cattle industry, focusing on maintaining herd health and reproductive efficiency.

Sydney Vanderhoff emphasizes the series’ value: “Attending this webinar will aid in developing future management decisions regarding marketing, weather and health.” It is an excellent opportunity for anyone involved in the cattle industry, from producers to academics, to gain practical strategies that can be applied directly to their operations.

SDSU’s webinar series promises to equip participants with the knowledge to tackle some of the most pressing issues in the cattle industry today. With expert insights and a focus on actionable advice, these webinars are an essential resource for those looking to adapt and grow in the evolving agricultural landscape.
