This workshop will be held from 10 a.m – 2:00 p.m., including lunch, with 2 different sessions, held on January 30th and February 13th.
Session 1 will focus on alternative feeds and forages, and managing beef brood cow nutrition, with discussion led by Dr. Francis Fluharty.
Session 2 on February 13 will focus on herd health and reproduction with Dr. Les Anderson from the University of Kentucky, and include live demonstrations from OSU Extension Beef Team members on body condition scoring, bull breeding soundness evaluation, and semen handling.
Both sessions of the workshop will be held in a heated barn, with an informal, demonstration and question/answer type setting utilizing live animals and equipment. Participants who attend both sessions will qualify to receive BQA certification.
The cost for the two session Ohio Beef Cow/Calf workshop will be $40 per person and will include lunch, handouts, and the BQA certification.
