Herd that! empowering women in livestock agriculture

Herd that! empowering women in livestock agriculture


By Scout Nelson

Nebraska Women in Agriculture, in partnership with the Nebraska Beef Quality Assurance Program, presents the fourth annual Herd That! Conference on June 10-11 in North Platte. This event is tailored for women involved in livestock production or working in the livestock sector, offering valuable knowledge, tools, and networking opportunities.

The conference kicks off with a tour of T/D Angus, a leading seedstock operation in North Platte. Attendees will explore innovative practices and gain insights from Trey and Dayna Wasserburger, the operators of T/D Angus. The tour will be followed by dinner and a keynote address by Terryn Drieling, a passionate advocate for rural America and sustainable agriculture.

On June 11, participants will engage in hands-on workshops led by industry experts and Nebraska Extension professionals. Workshop topics will focus on beef cattle reproduction, covering areas such as hormone safety, bull selection, and cow culling. Attendees will also hear from Trust in Food during lunch, learning about sustainability in livestock production.

Registration is now open on the Nebraska Women in Agriculture website. Early bird registration is available until May 31, with a two-day registration fee of $125. After June 1, the fee increases to $150. One-day registrations are also accepted. Veterinary medicine professionals can earn continuing education credits by attending the conference.

Don't miss this opportunity to enhance your skills and expand your network in the livestock agriculture industry.
