We are very excited for this upcoming seminar September 1 – 3, 2017, in Dickinson, North Dakota, hosted by the NDSU Dickinson Research Center. The Dickinson Research Center has been studying their herd of Moderator females for years. The Congress will focus on signals to pay attention to when striving to become more efficient and attempting to return more net revenue to the ranch in a beef cattle enterprise. Animal scientists from several notable universities and research facilities will speak to a paradigm shift that can make us all more efficient and more profitable. We hope you will attend.
