Mark your calendars for an insightful field day focused on beef production at North Dakota State University's Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC). Scheduled for July 16, this event showcases the latest findings in livestock management and technology.

The day kicks off at 9 a.m. with registration, followed by a welcoming address from NDSU President David Cook and other distinguished leaders. Attendees will then have the choice among four intriguing tours, including a specialized beef production tour.

Beef Production Tour Highlights:

  • Feedout Project Updates: Learn about the Dakota Feeder Calf Show and Angus University with Karl Hoppe, a seasoned Extension livestock systems specialist.
  • Livestock Research Insights: Gain updates from Colin Tobin, a dedicated animal scientist at CREC.

Advanced Livestock Technologies:

  • Camera sensors for estimating cattle condition, presented by Colin Tobin.
  • Virtual fencing techniques discussed by Miranda Meehan, an expert in livestock environmental stewardship.
  • Precision livestock technologies, including innovative ear tags, explained by Guillermo Scaglia, chair of the NDSU Department of Animal Sciences.
  • Camera grading for quality at local locker plants by Shane Wendel from Dakota Angus LLC.

Aside from beef production, attendees can explore other areas such as agronomy, northern hardy fruit, organic agriculture, and specialty crops, with an afternoon tour dedicated to the latter.

A free lunch will be provided at noon, thanks to generous support from Green Bison Soy Processing and the Carrington Research Extension Center, offering a chance to network and discuss the morning's findings.

CREC is conveniently located just 3.5 miles north of Carrington on U.S. Highway 281, making it easily accessible for all participants.
