Cattle Conference comes to Minot

MINOT, N.D.- Kansas State beef-genetics specialist Bob Weaber was the host speaker for Wednesday night’s cattle breeding workshop.

Weaber is just one of many guests from outside the state who will speak to livestock producers from northwest North Dakota about contemporary topics in their industry.

Livestock producers will have a chance to exchange thoughts among one another about genetics, winter care, and drought challenges.

“By following that genetics and tweaking them a little bit, we can get a little better concept of what our cattle are doing, how they can be more efficient, and how they can be a better quality product to the consumer,” said Bob Green, a livestock producer.

“We've brought some speakers in from Denver, from Saskatchewan, from Kansas and other places. But we want to make sure our producers, in this part of the state, this part of the world get in access to network with one another and hear some of the developments going on in their industry,” said John Dhuyvetter, a NDSU livestock specialist.

Wednesday's event is followed by Thursday's conference from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m at the Holiday Inn Riverside
