Calling All Feedlot Cowboys to Wichita

August 19, 2015 11:13 AM

In less than a month feedlot cowboys from across the country will be gathering in Wichita, Kan. to learn about best management practices and animal welfare.

Beef Today’s Cowboy College will take place on Sept. 15-16, in Wichita, Kan. The two-day educational program is designed specifically for feedlot cattle crews – processing teams, cowboy doctors and others involved in the day-to-day care and welfare of beef feedlot animals.

The program features industry-leading veterinarians: Dan Thomson, Director of the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University, Mike Apley, Kansas State University professor and Tom Noffsinger, animal handling expert and feedlot consultant from Benkelman, Neb.

"The people who came to this meeting were here because they want to be the best, and they will go home and implement changes because of what they’ve learned," Thomson said of last year’s event.

Last year more than 130 beef producers from 17 states attended Cowboy College. Get registered now to help increase the knowledge of your feedlot crew.
