South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension will be holding two, two-day, in person conferences discussing the impacts of calving distribution on management strategies and how management can drive calving and future returns on calves starting Nov. 9-10, in Watertown, South Dakota at the Ramkota Hotel and Watertown Event Center (1901 9th Ave SW ), and continuing Dec. 7-8, in Pierre, South Dakota at the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center (920 W Sioux Ave).
Participants will have the opportunity to analyze their own calving distribution data, as well as tour prominent local operations that are already utilizing some of the strategies discussed in the course. Tours will allow participants the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of management strategies that positively influence calving distribution and the potential revenue associated with a consolidated calf crop, as well as valuable networking time with other progressive cattlemen and women.
