The Range Beef Cow Symposium will be held November 18-20 in Mitchell, NE at the Scotts Bluff County Fairgrounds. The format is slightly different this year. In the afternoon of November 18, we will be offering Beef Quality Assurance Certification and a Ron Gill stockmanship clinic. The more traditional program will start in the morning of the 19th. However, in the afternoon of both the 19th and the 20th, there will be demonstrations and hands-on presentations offered 3-4 times throughout the afternoon. During this time one of the rotations offered will be to visit the vendor booths, allowing more time for producers to interact with those industry supporting services who help bring them this great program every year.
This program has been offered every other year since 1969 and is hosted by the University of Nebraska, the University of Wyoming, South Dakota State, and Colorado State.
