Iowa Beef Center’s Cow Systems Project, a research project to characterize three cow-calf production management systems across Iowa, will be the focus of a June 12 webinar sponsored by Iowa Farm Bureau.
The webinar is set to begin at 1 p.m. and will include an overview of the project results. It was originally designed to identify costs, environmental impacts and best practices of three cow-calf systems: limited, traditional and extended grazed systems. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach beef specialists Denise Schwab and Erika Lundy will lead the webinar discussion.
The full results of the project can be found as Iowa Cow-calf Production – Exploring Different Management Systems on the Extension Store, https://store.extension.iastate.edu/. The publication can be downloaded at no cost as pdf documents in entirety and by individual chapter and appendix.
