Limited space available in 2022 Feedlot Short Course


Feedlot Cattle Eating at Bunk with Short Course attendees in the Background.

AMES, Iowa – If you’re thinking about attending this year’s Feedlot Short Course you’ll want to act soon. A few spots remain and Iowa State University extension beef specialist Erika Lundy-Woolfolk said participants in the August 2-4 event will be the first to experience new topics including a beef carcass fabrication demonstration in the ISU meat lab.

"Also new this year are an implant demonstration and a session on chute side management tips that focus on foot health," she said. "We purposefully limit attendance to 30 people so we can provide optimal hands-on opportunities and small group learning."

Content-specific portions of the short course will be held at the Hansen Ag Student Learning Center in Ames, the Iowa State Beef Nutrition Farm near Ames, the ISU Meat Lab on the ISU campus, and Couser Cattle Company in Nevada, Iowa.

The $350 per person registration fee covers transportation to and from classroom facilities and local feedlots, handouts and meals. Participants are responsible for making their own lodging arrangements, if needed.
