Description

Jeremy Plesman, a cattle nutrition consultant will share how to spend less time getting cows healthy after calving and increase returns on next year’s calves by having an in-depth understanding of nutrient and mineral nutrition.

What you’ll learn

  • Impact of basic mineral requirements on calving and conception time

  • How animal health is linked to better offspring, weight gain and feed conversion – and improved economic returns

  • Importance of both minerals and nutrients to cow metabolism and health

You’ll also hear from Christa Harder from the Dawson Creek Veterinary Clinic on staying current in a changing industry, building the producer/vet relationship, managing herd statistics and the Verified Beef Production Program.
