The UW Madison Division of Extension Beef Program Team will be hosting Dr. Dan Thomson, DVM, Iowa State University to discuss Management of Newly Weaned Calves in the Feedlot. The transition from weaning to the feedlot is often the most stressful time in a feedlot animal’s life. Successful transition of the calf during this time has a lasting influence on how the animal performs in the feedlot and carcass quality. This session will cover strategies that protect the health and feedlot performance of calves at this time. Dr. Thomsen is currently the Department Head of the Animal Science Department at Iowa State University, you may also recognize him from his previous work in beef production at Kansas State or as the host of DocTalk on RFD-TV. The webinar is scheduled for February 9th from 7 – 8:30 p.m. CT.
