Welcome to Angus Production Inc.’s (API’s) coverage of the 2007 Range Beef Cow Symposium, which is scheduled for Dec. 11-13, 2007, at “The Ranch,” the Larimer County Fairgrounds and Events Complex, Fort Collins, Colo. The Ranch is located adjacent to I-25, just north of Highway 34 in Loveland, Colo.
Fort Collins is pleased to be hosting the Range Beef Cow Symposium XX. It is sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Service and animal science departments of South Dakota State University, Colorado State University, the University of Wyoming and the University of Nebraska. The biennial symposium has a reputation of being an excellent educational program, offering practical production management information since the first symposium in Chadron, Neb., in 1969.
The Bull Pen Sessions are said to be the most valuable part of the symposium. This is a time for attendees to have considerable discussion with the speakers and an opportunity to ask specific questions. The majority of symposium speakers on Tuesday and Wednesday will be present in the evening following their presentations.
A delicious beef dinner will be provided at the McKee 4-H Building both evenings. Indicate dinner reservations on the registration form.
Commercial displays representing many segments of the industry are an integral part of the symposium. Exhibitors will be present to discuss their products, plus information on newly-released products will be available.
Producers and researchers will explore ways to improve the management of grazing land during a pre-symposium workshop hosted by Crystalyx Dec. 10, beginning at 1 p.m. “Don’t Fence Me In: Using Animal Behavior and Low-Moisture Block Supplements to Manage Pastures” will feature research from authorities on animal behavior and livestock nutrition, as well as producers who have used modified grazing distribution successfully.
Prior to the conference, this web site will feature hotel and registration information, a schedule of the symposium and an archive of API coverage of the 2003 and 2005 events. During and after the conference, API will post summaries of the sessions, along with the PowerPoint presentations and proceedings, if available. A link to the audios will be provided following the conference. Go to the Newsroom page for coverage.
