ORANGE CITY, Iowa — The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Dairy Team monthly webinar scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 18 has been rescheduled due to a death in the presenter’s family. The program, “What’s Changing on the New Sire Summaries?” by Dr. James Koltes, Assistant Professor, Iowa State University, will now be held Tuesday, Dec. 8.
The program will be part of the virtual Dairy Directions program, which can be accessed for free online from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 8 at https://iastate.zoom.us/j/92375973003.
The Dairy Directions virtual program will feature updates to the December Genetic Evaluation. Dr. Koltes will focus on the development of the “feed saved” genetic evaluation and the “heifer livability proof,” and how these will be incorporated into the SNM index in April. Plus, he will review the calving ease changes from the August proofs. In addition, ISU Extension and Outreach Dairy Specialist Fred Hall will present a short milk market review.
There is no fee to attend and registration is not required.
