This short course is a joint effort of Ohio State University Extension, Michigan State University, and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture to enhance the cattle industry in the Eastern Corn Belt.
The industry is implementing programs to maintain consumer confidence in the product produced in our facilities. One of these programs is audits conducted by third party entities on animal care and environmental compliance. The first session will focus on feed additives, manure management and maximizing use of the corn crop. The second session will include cattle economics, cattle marketing alternatives and electronic carcass grading.
Both Ohio sessions will be held at the Wood County Junior Fair Building in Bowling Green. Registration and refreshments will be provided beginning at 6 pm each evening.
