Full program information for the Beef Barn is as follows:

TUESDAY Oct. 20
10:00 AM-Maximizing Winter Annual Production
Dr. Jennifer Johnson and Dr. Kim Mullenix
Winter annuals are great tools to deliver nutrients to cattle through the winter. However, establishment and management are crucial to getting the most out of these forages. Start the morning off learning about how to maximize production with winter annuals.

11:00 AM-Body Condition Scoring and Reproductive Efficiency
Dr. Matt Hersom and Dr. Lawton Stewart
The #1 goal of beef producers is to have a calf on the ground every 365 days. Reproductive efficiency is highly dependent on nutrition. Learn how body condition scoring is a excellent method of assessing nutrient status and how this relates to reproductive efficiency.

Noon-Market Update and Cattle Industry Hot Topics Discussion
Chris Prevatt and a SE Cattleman’s Association Representative
Southeastern beef cattle producers have seen record high prices received for cattle over the past two years. What does the coming year look like? Listen to what is in store, plus, join in as one of our Southeastern producers give a prospective from their production system.

1:00 PM-What is High Quality Forage?
Dr. Cheryl Mackowiak
Forage quality is often discussed, but what exactly determines quality? Protein, energy, what else? Learn the ins and outs of forage quality, what affects it, and how can we maximize it.

2:00 PM-Increasing Conception/Calving Rate/Dystocia Simulator
Dr. Lee Jones, Dr. Jacob Segers, Dr. Matt Burns
Reproductive efficiency is extremely important. A cow has not done her job until she breeds and calves with little or no assistance. However, dystocia is tough problem that almost all producers will face at some point. Come learn about improving reproductive efficiency and techniques to handle dystocia with a life-size simulator.

WEDNESDAY Oct. 21
10:00 AM-Using Legumes Strategically
Dr. Dennis Hancock
Legumes have potential to add high quality forage to your pasture AND increase soil nutrients for other pasture forages. Establishment and management are the keys to successful utilization of legumes. Come learn strategies to maximize the return from your legume investiment.

THURSDAY Oct. 22
10:00 AM-Maximizing Summer Annual Production
Dr. Ann Blount
Summer annuals are great tools to increase forage quantity and quality through the summer. These forages have tremendous potential grazed or conserved as baleage. However, similar other annual forages, establishment and management are crucial to getting the most out of these forages. Start another morning off learning about how to maximize production with winter annuals.
