The Range Beef Cow Symposium is sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Service and animal science departments of the University of Wyoming, South Dakota State University, Colorado State University and the University of Nebraska. The biennial symposium has a reputation of being an excellent educational program, offering practical production management information since the first symposium in Chadron, Neb., in 1969.
The event rotates between Colorado, western Nebraska, western South Dakota and Wyoming. Focusing on beef production issues in the Western states, the symposium attracted nearly 800 attendees and more than 80 agribusiness vendors for the three-day event.
One of the most popular and unique aspects of the Range Beef Cow Symposium, evening Bull Pen Sessions provide time for attendees to ask specific questions of speakers and to discuss more in-depth the day’s topics.
Commercial displays representing many segments of the industry are an integral part of the symposium. Exhibitors were on hand to introduce new products and discuss their product lineups.
