General Information
Nebraska is excited about hosting the XVIII Range Beef Cow Symposium. It is sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Service and Animal Science Departments of the University of Nebraska, South Dakota State University, Colorado State University, and the University of Wyoming. We hope you will enjoy western Nebraska and the Scottsbluff-Gering area, which is cattle country. The Symposium has a reputation of being an excellent educational program. It is held every other year among the cooperating states. The first Symposium was held in Chadron, Nebraska, in 1969.

Bull Pen Sessions
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 the Symposium speakers on Tuesday and Wednesday will be present in the evening following their presentations. A delicious beef dinner will be offered prior to the Bull Pen Sessions which will be held at the Gering Civic Center, 1050 M Street, Gering, NE. Indicate dinner reservations on the registration form.

Commercial Booth Displays
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.
