University of Nebraska-Lincoln scientists conduct agricultural research at many locations in western Nebraska – the Panhandle Research and Extension Center plots; the Panhandle Research Feedlot; the High Plains Ag Lab near Sidney; and in fields belonging to cooperating farmers.

One of UNL’s lesser-known research laboratories attained a landmark this year. It was 100 years ago, in 1918, that the federal government gave the university an 800-acre piece of rangeland in southern Sioux County to conduct regionally relevant research.

“Increased Production Efficiency” is the theme of the 2018 Nebraska State of Beef Conference, scheduled for Nov. 7-8 at the North Platte Sandhills Convention Center.

Speakers, including experts from university and industry, will focus on market outlook, industry trends, alternative enterprises, animal health, and several different approaches to finding efficiencies in animal production.
