The 2013 Mid-South Stocker Conference will be the seventh consecutive one. The conference is a cooperative effort between the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service and The University of Tennessee Extension.
The objectives of the conference are to assist stocker operators in exploring ideas for the production of efficient performing healthy cattle and determining the role of stocker production in a rapidly evolving cattle industry and effectively meeting consumer expectations. These objectives are being accomplished through take home research and carrying out educational programs that present innovative ideas that can be readily applied to individual operations.
The conference will also provide a unique opportunity for producers to interact with other stocker operators from the Mid-South region and industry professionals. Animal health, equipment, nutrition and marketing exhibits will be available in an up-to-date trade show.
