ISU Extension Aims To Assist Beef Producers To Maintain Performance In Wake Of Drought

Date posted - November 9, 2012

Orange City, Iowa — This past summer’s drought is having far-reaching effects. One area that will certainly be affected is livestock production. Iowa State University Extension Beef Field Specialist Beth Doran tells us that they have a series of meetings scheduled that will help producers find solutions to drought-related problems.

She says the classes are designed to help both cow-calf and feedlot producers. She tells us about the effects producers are expected to face.

She says with the corn costs being high, producers are looking for ways to reduce corn use, but still maintain performance. Plus, with two years of drought, there is going to be a shortage of feeder cattle. She says they’ll also have a weather outlook.

To get registered for the program, contact the county office where the program will be held, or you can call Doran at 712-737-4230. The registration fee is $10, payable at the door.
