2017 ARSBC symposium
set for Aug. 29-30 in Manhattan, Kan
Make plans now to attend the 2017 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle (ARSBC) symposium Aug. 29-30. Hosted by the Kansas State University Animal Sciences and Industry Department and K-State Research and Extension, the event will be headquartered at the Hilton Garden Inn and Conference Center in Manhattan, Kan.
Considered the premier national event in beef cattle reproductive management, the meeting has a long history of providing the latest information on the application of reproductive technologies and includes a range of topics related to cow herd reproduction such as nutritional interactions, management and male fertility.
The meeting is open to anyone with an interest in beef cattle reproduction, including producers, technicians, veterinarians and professionals in related industries.
Program details have not been released for this year’s program but check back to this site and watch for future announcements. Extensive online coverage of past meetings can be found at the Newsroom Archive of this site.
The meeting is organized by the Beef Reproduction Task Force, a multi-state Extension group made up of specialists from Kansas State University, the University of Missouri, Iowa State University, the University of Nebraska, South Dakota State University, the University of Florida, the University of California–Davis, the University of Idaho and Oregon State University.
The Beef Reproduction Task Force hosted the first ARSBC symposium in 2002 at Manhattan, Kan. Since that time, symposia have been conducted at 16 locations across the United States.
“We are looking forward to bringing this meeting back to Kansas,” says Sandy Johnson, K-State Department of Animal Sciences and Industry associate professor and extension beef specialist.
