This series of informative events is set to take place at Beagio’s in Kingston, Mich., or online via Zoom, depending on participant preference. Those who attend in person are welcome to come grab a bite to eat and attend the presentation.

This year’s program allows for participants to attend in-person or virtually via Zoom. Topics include vitamin and mineral nutrition, identifying, treating, and preventing respiratory disease, managing mortalities, and cattle handling and facility designs for feedlot cattle.
