SDSU Extension, in collaboration with Nebraska Extension, is set to host the Siouxland Feedlot Forum on June 18, 2024. Scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., this important educational event will take place at the South Sioux City Marriott Riverfront, located at 385 East 4th Street, South Sioux City, Nebraska.

The forum aims to deliver timely and relevant educational experiences tailored for professionals involved in consulting and service provision within the feedlot sector of the upper Midwest. The event's agenda is packed with insightful presentations addressing key industry topics.

The day begins with registration at 10:30 a.m., followed by a welcoming session with Pete Anderson discussing carcass value influences. After lunch, Warren Rusche, SDSU Assistant Professor and Extension Feedlot Management Specialist, will present sessions on heat event preparation in feedlots.

Additional talks include Alfredo DiCostanzo, a UNL Beef Systems Extension Educator, who will explore nutritional quality management strategies for earlage and high-moisture corn.

The day will conclude with a presentation by Zach Smith, SDSU Assistant Professor, on managing meat quality and cutability through proper energy supply management.

Registration for the forum is set at $100. Interested parties can also explore partnership opportunities with SDSU and UNL to help offset the event's organizational and delivery costs. A partnership package is available for $500, which includes two event registrations.
