The past year has been one of the most volatile in the history of the beef industry. Cattle producers, consumers and industry decision makers have an opportunity to join university and industry professionals and learn more about the current issues causing this volatility in the cattle and beef industries through the Intersection of the Cattle and Beef Industry webinar series. North Dakota State University Extension is co-hosting this series along with Texas A & M Agrilife Extension and West Virginia University.
This series is offered free of charge in an effort to provide an accurate, science- and evidence-based overview of the U.S. beef industry from conception to consumption. Offered in two hour sessions twice weekly, each session is recorded and available for review later by anyone who registers to participate. The series is set to run each Tuesday and Thursday through June 25, and begins each evening at 8 p.m. EDT.
An overview of MCOOL, Imports and Exports, Packer Profits, Local Meats, Protein Industry Euthanasia, and the Beef Check Off are just a few of the topics to be discussed. More details of each session, registration information, and links to past recordings may be found at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/livestockextension/intersectionwebinars
