Join us for this one of a kind experience on November 11 - 12, 2020. Stockmanship and Stewardship is a unique two-day educational experience featuring live low-stress cattle handling demonstrations, Beef Quality Assurance training, and industry updates you won’t find anywhere else. This event brings together beef & dairy producers, stakeholders, and key industry members to partake in educational programs in cattle handling and management from the experts. Gain an edge on learning about consumer concerns regarding beef sustainability and livestock welfare, how those concerns have impacted the industry, and the role that Beef Quality Assurance plays in the conversation.  Producers who attend receive hands-on training in best management practices to help improve their operation! We encourage those involved in the beef & dairy industries who can attend to engage in the discussion of current industry challenges, consumer driven trends, and realistic strategies to enhance producer’s commitment to stockmanship & stewardship.
