Welcome to Angus Production Inc.’s (API’s) coverage of the 2009 Range Beef Cow Symposium, which is scheduled for Dec. 1-3, 2009, at the Casper Events Center, Casper, Wyo. The Events Center is located just north of I-25 in Casper.
The Casper Area Convention and Visitors Bureau is excited to host the Range Beef Cow Symposium XXI. Casper also hosted the event in 2001, where attendance approached 1,200. The Range Beef Cow Symposium is sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Service and animal science departments of the University of Wyoming, South Dakota State University, Colorado State University 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.
The Best Western Ramkota Hotel, symposium headquarters, will provide evening buffets associated with the bullpen sessions, also held at the hotel.
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.
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, 2005 and 2007 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.
