"This webinar is being conducted to help beef producers assess their current nutrition and management strategies in light of the challenges to the beef market that was created by COVID – 19” says Dr. Dale Blasi, K-State beef cattle Extension specialist. “The availability of distillers grains as a consequence of COVID is in short supply and as a result, many of the attributes that this co-product provides in protein supply, moisture attributes to the ration and etc. have created challenges for producers as they identify alternative feed ingredients to use in its place.”
The program will feature brief updates on the current market situation from Dr. Glynn Tonsor and alternative protein sources to replace distillers products in rations led by Dr. Jaymelynn Farney and Dr. Justin Waggoner. Dr. Dale Blasi, will address nutrition and management considerations that may be implemented by producers growing cattle in these challenging times.
Hosted by the Kansas State University Animal Sciences and Industry Department and K-State Research and Extension, the webinar will be held via zoom on Thursday, May 14, at 12:00 PM.
