SDSU Extension Hosts Feedlot Tour July 14

SDSU Extension teams up with the South Dakota Cattlemen's Association - Cattle Feeder Council to host a feedlot tour July 14, 2015.

"Cattle producers often wonder what they can do to improve efficiencies and practices, this tour may give them the answers they are looking for," said Reid McDaniel, SDSU Extension Beef Feedlot Specialist.

This tour provides attendees with a first-hand look at feedlot operations as well as an opportunity to visit with the feedlot owner/managers as well as SDSU and SDSU Extension staff.

The event begins at 7 a.m. with a bus departing from the South Dakota State University motor pool lot (corner of 13th St. and Medary Ave, Brookings) at 7:30 a.m. To attend the tour, you may either join the bus, or meet at the specific locations.
