DOLLARS OUT OF DECISIONS: The 2021 Three-State Beef Conference will include speakers discussing topics like profit drivers, aligning trait emphasis with market endpoints, and the value of connected data.
Jan. 12-14 online program will provide valuable information on optimizing ROI.

For 35 years, the Three-State Beef Conference has provided beef cattle producers in Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska an annual update on current and critical cow-calf and stocker topics. Iowa State University extension beef specialist Chris Clark says that although the 2021 event will be done virtually due to the pandemic, the program will continue to provide quality speakers and valuable information.

“For the safety of everyone involved and to ensure compliance with all public health guidance, we decided it was best to offer a virtual program this year,” he said.

The 2021 program, titled “Making Dollars Out of Decisions” is set for Jan. 12-14, with an hourlong webinar beginning at 7 p.m. each day.

Here are the conference dates and session titles, speakers and their affiliations:

Jan. 12. “What's on the horizon for the cattle industry: pricing changes, profit drivers and other possibilities in 2021” by Scott Brown, assistant Extension professor in ag and applied economics at the University of Missouri

Jan. 13. “Making selections: aligning trait emphasis with market endpoints” by Bob Weaber, Kansas State University Extension beef specialist

Jan. 14. “Value of connected data” by Justin Sexten, vice president of strategy at Performance Livestock Analytics

All sessions are free, although registration is required. People will register once for all three days, and following that step will receive an email with the webinar link and sign-in details. Register here.
