Heifer Development Webinar: Managing Bred Heifers for the Future
Wednesday, February 10th @ 12:30pm

As the cattle market returns to more normal conditions, producers will need to plan accordingly to manage risk to be successful during this part of the cattle cycle. SDSU Extension is hosting a four-part webinar series, “Managing Bred Heifers for the Future”, to provide producers with science-based tools they can use to effectively manage their herds in today’s cattle market.
These webinars can be viewed from anywhere with internet access, allowing producers the ability to take advantage of these learning opportunities without leaving the ranch. Participants will be able to have their questions answered by the presenters by typing in their questions into the chat box. All sessions will be recorded.
