The theme for the Conference is "Stocker Solutions for Challenging Times." The cost of production has nearly doubled the past couple of years and cattle producers are looking for management and marketing options that will aid them in being more efficient and maintain profitability. That is the focus of the Conference. (Brochure)

The Conference will get underway on February 24 with a tour of stocker and market operators in the area as well as a reception and trade show of 25-30 exhibits opening on February 24. The next day will consist of presentations focused on practices that will contribute to reducing costs affiliated with stocker cattle production.

The objective of the Conference the past three years has been to provide producers information that will be helpful to them in their operations.
