West Central Cattlemen’s Day Series Offered at Twelve Locations

The combination of low commodity prices and high input costs has left cattle producers struggling to reach breakeven levels. With focus on the current down-turn in the agricultural economy, Nebraska Extension and Colorado State University Extension will be hosting a series of meetings in twelve locations across western Nebraska and eastern Colorado. According to Erin Laborie, Nebraska Extension Beef Educator, “The program is designed to help cattle producers minimize input costs, generate additional income, utilize risk management strategies, and expand marketing opportunities.”
