Virtual Beef Day – Wednesday January 5, 2022

Beef Day is a producer led annual event that has been a part of GBFW since the very first year in 1966! Targeted to beef producers, the purpose is to provide an opportunity for producers to meet and be educated on the latest technology, discuss pertinent issues, learn about health and nutrition topics and much more! It is also an excellent opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with fellow farmers.
There are two key objectives that the organizing committee strive to achieve for Beef Day: that the information be linked back to the animal and that producers can implement at least two ideas after participating in the sessions.

Beef Day CEUs

There will be 1 Crop Management CEU available for Dr. Katie Wood's presentation 'Five Ways to Reduce Feed Costs in the Cow-Calf Sector'.
