For 35 years, the Three-State Beef Conference has provided beef cattle producers in Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska an annual update on current and critical cow-calf and stocker topics. Iowa State University extension beef specialist Chris Clark said that although the 2021 event will be done virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program will continue to provide quality speakers and valuable information.
“For the safety of everyone involved and to ensure compliance with all public health guidance, we decided it was best to offer a virtual program this year,” he said.
The 2021 program, titled “Making Dollars out of Decisions” is set for January 12-14, with an hour-long webinar beginning at 7 p.m. each day.
Here are the conference dates and session titles, speakers and their affiliations.
All sessions are free, however, registration is required. People will register once for all three days, and following that step will receive an email with the webinar link and sign-in details. Register here https://unl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_7OcoslzVSnqK9z9Rn5c1mg
