Workshops target cow producers

Colorado State University Cooperative Extension will conduct a series of educational workshops for cow/calf producers in Northwest Colorado. The workshops are from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday in Craig and Thursday in Meeker.

Topics covered will include:

  • What cattle health issues are producers facing today?
  • Is there a way to reduce fertilizer cost and maintain hay yield and quality?
  • What is the latest on animal identification?
  • How to minimize risk with increasing production cost.

Other topics at the workshops are increasing production and returns on pastures, cattle market outlook, beef cattle diseases, animal ID program, herd replacement, making smart management decisions and RightRisk.
