See all the advantages of attending this two-day lectureship aimed at using genetic technology to improve your beef cattle herd.


When it comes to the health and marketability of your beef cattle herd, genetics is an important topic. However, the technology has advanced at a dizzying rate in recent years, and it can be hard to keep up. A two-day lectureship—the Application of Advanced Genetic Technology in Beef Cattle—will bring attendees up to speed and beyond. It’s scheduled for this February 22nd and 23rd at the Florida Cattlemen’s Association in Kissimmee. See the advantages of attending the event below.
