South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension and North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension will be hosting a collaborative program sponsored by Annie’s Project, titled “Meat Marketing 101,” in Bowman, North Dakota at the Cow Chip Creations event barn (9202 152nd Ave. SW) on Oct. 14, 2021, beginning at 5:30 p.m. M.T.
Organizers of the event hope to reach women experienced in the direct marketing industry, along with any newcomers marketing meat products to consumers. Industry specialists from both South Dakota and North Dakota will discuss various topics related to marketing in the meat production industry, along with answering any questions participants may have. A discussion panel will also be hosted with producers who are currently direct marketing their own meat, and afterwards a taste panel of beef and lamb products will be served for supper.
In addition, an optional facility tour of the Bowman Ranch in Rhame, North Dakota (8301 158th Ave. SW) will be offered at 3 p.m. M.T. before the start of the event.
