Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are teaming up to offer a Feedlot Roundtable session at six Iowa locations on Thursday, Feb. 13 from 9:00 am until noon.

“As part of a cooperative agreement between Iowa State Extension and UNL Extension that provides sharing of livestock educational resources and programs, and through available technology, the roundtables also will be offered via Internet connection for Iowans in selected locations,” Iowa State Extension beef program specialist Russ Euken said. “The speakers and subject matter are sure to draw interest from our state’s beef community.”

More information, including a registration form, is available on the Iowa Beef Center website
