For 37 years, the Three-State Beef Conference has provided beef cattle producers in Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska an annual update on current and critical cow-calf and stocker topics affecting producers in the three-state area. The 2022 Three-State Beef Conference offers beef producers the opportunity to learn from specialists focusing on improving profitability through implementation of some next-level management strategies for beef cow-calf operations. Topics include beef bull development and longevity, marketing and risk management options and strategies, and matching cows to your environment.
The 2022 topics and speakers address selecting and developing both bulls and females that will remain in herds for years to come as well as some strategies to help cow-calf producers implement risk management and marketing protection.
