The 2016 Southern Dairy Conference is planned for March 8th and 9th, 2016 in Atlanta, GA.  This unique conference is hosted by universities across the south in an effort to promote the competitiveness and sustainability of the southern dairy producer.  This conference serves as a forum for the discussion of issues of mutual concern to producers, processors, retailers, regulatory personnel, cooperative leaders, government officials, university specialists and others with an interest in the dairy industry.  This melting pot of the southern dairy industry promotes community and fosters communications throughout industry sectors.  Attached you will find an agenda and speaker information for the 2016 conference as well as registration and hotel information.  Below is a website that contains the same information if easier for your use.  Early registration rates apply through February 8th and rooms will be blocked (until sold out) at a reduced rate until February 13th.

Beef Cattle Tips- January

January 13, 2016

January is the middle of the fall breeding season. Check bulls to be sure they are maintaining body condition and are still sound (feet, legs, eyes, and etc).  If bulls seem to be disinterested, perhaps rotating bulls would be helpful.

Protect hay when feeding to reduce waste. Feed hay in rings to reduce hay waste. Unrolling hay increases hay waste unless it is done on a limit-feeding basis.
