More than 130 beef producers from 17 states assembled in Omaha, Neb., during the Beef Today Cowboy College held Sept. 9-10.

The two-day educational program was 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 featured 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 says.
