Update for veterinarians set

Apr 25, 2017

AMES – Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will host an update for veterinarians 9 a.m.-4 p.m. May 31 at McNay Memorial Research and Demonstration Farm near Chariton.

The day will feature both hands-on demonstrations as well as updates on treatments and practices.

“The hand-on demonstrations are a new feature this year,” said Joe Sellers, beef specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach. “During the afternoon sessions attendees will have an opportunity to perform a liver biopsy on cattle. The day will also feature new information on genetic testing to identify cattle who are more tolerant to grazing tall fescue.”

Registration fee for the event is $65 and is due by May 29; fee increases to $85 after that date. Online registration form can be downloaded from the Iowa Beef Center website.
