Welcome to Angus Productions Inc.s (APIs) coverage of the 2005 Range Beef Cow Symposium, which is scheduled for Dec. 6-8, 2005, with the Marketing for Black Ink seminar hosted by Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB) the evening preceding the symposium.
The Range Beef Cow Symposium XIX is sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Services and the animal science departments of South Dakota State University, Colorado State University, the University of Wyoming and the University of Nebraska. The symposium has a reputation of being an excellent educational program, steeped in practical, production management information. It is conducted every other year among the four cooperating states. The first symposium took place in Chadron, Neb., in 1969.
BULL PEN SESSIONS
The Bull Pen Sessions are said to be the most valuable part of the symposium. These sessions, which begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, provide an opportunity for attendees to ask specific questions and to have in-depth discussions with speakers and other attendees. The majority of speakers on Tuesday and Wednesday will be present in the evening following their presentations.
COMMERCIAL BOOTH DISPLAYS
Commercial displays representing many segments of the industry are an integral part of the symposium. Exhibitors will be present to provide information about their products and services.
