Oklahoma Hosts Beef Improvement Federation Annual Meeting- Where Profit and Progress Intersect

Oklahoma Hosts Beef Improvement Federation Annual Meeting- Where Profit and Progress Intersect


The 45th annual Research Symposium and Annual Meeting of the Beef Improvement Federation has come to Oklahoma City this week.

Themed "Where Profit and Progress Intersect," this year's program will bring together industry professionals, producers and researchers to discuss current issues facing the beef industry. Among those issues, speakers will tackle the crossbreeding vs. straightbreeding debate, as well as using genetic tools to address environmental challenges and cow herd efficiency. The host of this year's meeting , the Animal Science Department of Oklahoma State University, has a webpage about the 2013 meeting- and you can click here for the program that is found on that site.

Our special guest on today's Beef Buzz is the Executive Director of the BIF, Dr. Joe Cassady. We talked with him as these beef industry professionals were gathering on Wednesday afternoon from across the country as well as from Canada- and we talked about the BIF and where beef research is likely to take the beef cattle production in the days ahead.

The Angus Journal, in cooperation with BIF and with sponsorship of LiveAuctions.tv, will provide complete coverage of the event, including live streaming video. Those wanting to watch the live stream will need to register with LiveAuctions.tv if they aren't already, so log in a little ahead of time.
