Webinar: Fundamentals of Feeding the Cow


7:30 pm – 8:45 pm
Target Audiences:
Feed costs are often the largest category of expense for cow-calf producers in Nebraska. Understanding how the cow’s nutrient requirements change throughout the year and how to cost-effectively meet those requirements with the feed resources available can greatly influence an operation’s bottom line.
Topics include:
• What impacts a cow’s nutrient requirements and how do they change throughout the year?
• How do you read and understand a feed test analysis as well as a feed tag? What do the numbers mean?
• When comparing feed options, which is the best buy when all things are considered?
• What are things to consider when developing a year-round feeding plan?
Nebraska Extension will be hosting a four-session webinar series in March that will explain the fundamentals of understanding a cow’s nutrition requirements and the options available to meet a cow’s needs with grazed or harvested feed. The series will be held Monday and Thursday evenings, March 11, 14, 18 and 21, from 7:30 - 8:45 p.m. CT.
