Conference to focus on beef profitability.
The Cornbelt Cow-Calf Conference (CCCC) will be held Jan. 21 in Ottumwa, IA. The conference has provided timely, accurate and important information to the state's beef cattle industry for 40 years, and Iowa State University (ISU) Extension beef program specialist Byron Leu says this year's conference will continue its successful traditions.
This year's program focuses on a variety of topics designed to help producers recognize ways to make their operations more efficient and profitable. From maintaining competitiveness in light of high corn prices to applied approaches to genetics, experts from universities and private industry in the Midwest will be leading these sessions and giving producers valuable information to put into practice on their farms.
