FORT ATKINSON, Wis. — Hoard’s Dairyman’s next monthly webinar will occur on Monday, May 10 at noon (Central time). University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Dan Schaefer will present “Capturing full value for Holstein and crossbred steers.”
Schaefer will address differences in growth and carcass characteristics of crossbred cattle, which result in more pricing variability. While the finishing program for crossbreds is predictable, challenges for the beef-on-dairy system reside in genetic selection of beef sires for these matings.
Hoard’s Dairyman launched its free webinar series nine years ago in conjunction with the University of Illinois. These educational sessions are held the second Monday of each month and are broadcast live from noon until 1 p.m. (Central time). Attendees are encouraged to submit questions before, during, and after the webinar. They will be answered at the conclusion of the presentation.
Each hour-long webinar includes nationally known and carefully selected presenters who discuss the most timely and relevant challenges faced by today’s dairy producers. Past topics include finance, nutrition, milk quality, herd care, milk marketing, and dairy policy.
