The following is a press release from the American Angus Association:
Cattle producers will gather for a Cattlemen’s Boot Camp on Jan. 20-21, 2012, at the Utah State University South Farm in Logan, Utah.
The Cattlemen’s Boot Camp, which is hosted by Utah State University, in partnership with the American Angus Association®, provides purebred and commercial producers timely information presented by academic and industry professionals.
Open to all cattle producers, the event is funded by the Angus Foundation and features a day and a half of educational materials and speakers.
“We are excited to bring this educational opportunity back to the West,” says Shelia Stannard, Association director of activities and events. “Cattlemen’s Boot Camps are designed for all producers, and the topics covered will be beneficial for everyone.”
Topics will include: business management, reproductive performance, nutrition, quality and yield grade, identification methods, source verification programs, cull cow marketing and communication in the beef industry.
“Cattlemen’s Boot Camps are not only a great way to learn about various aspects of beef cattle production, but they also provide breeders with the opportunity to share ideas with one another,” says Katie Allen, marketing and public relations assistant for the Angus Foundation. “Education is an important component of the Angus Foundation’s funding efforts, and this particular event is one that the Foundation is proud to support.”
