Intersection of the Cattle and Beef Industry Webinar Series

June 4

Intersection of the Cattle and Beef Industry Webinar Series

The COVID – 19 pandemic and resulting slowdown in beef harvest has brought a lot of issues and concerns surrounding the production, processing and marketing of beef to the surface. Concern about trade, promotion, economic losses and profits have elicited conversations that are often hard to understand without knowing all the facts behind the conversation.

Cattle producers, consumers and decision makers will have an opportunity to learn more about the current issues in the cattle and beef industries through the Intersection of the Cattle and Beef Industry webinar series.  North Dakota State University Extension is co-hosting the series with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and West Virginia University.  Beginning May 12 and every Tuesday and Thursday through June 25 a series of FREE webinars will begin to go more into depth in each of these topics and many more.  I would highly recommend your attendance.

The first webinar will be tonight, Thursday May 7 at 7:00 pm CDT.  Register for the webinar at: www.ag.ndsu.edu/livestockextension/intersectionwebinars
