The annual Purdue Extension Beef Cow-Calf Improvement Seminar will provide a market outlook for 2016 and trends that might help cattle producers determine when and how to sell their calves to receive the best price.

Market needs will also be discussed and will include consumer demands and how Indiana cattle compare to other states.


Purdue Extension hopes this seminar will provide producers with strategies to improve return on investment – back-grounding, creep feeding, selling in pools and more.

Speakers for the day’s program include Dr. Jim Mintert – Purdue Center for Commercial Ag., Mr. David Trowbridge – Gregory Feedlots, Dr. Devin Laurent – University of Kentucky and Dr. Andrew Griffith – University of Tennessee, some of the top experts on this topic.

The Beef Management Seminar will be Saturday, January 16 at the Orange County Community Center (1075 N. Sandy Hook Rd., Paoli 47454) from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm. Registration is $30 per person, students are $15. The fee includes meals, snacks and take-home reference materials.
