High Plains Journal Presents Two-Day "Cattle U" Event in Dodge City This July 31 and August 1st - Register Now

Tue, 16 Jul 2019 11:10:00 CDT

High Plains Journal Presents Two-Day High Plains Journal is hosting a two-day learning opportunity, Cattle U, July 31 and Aug. 1 at the United Wireless Arena.

The event will feature several general sessions and breakout sessions aimed at cow-calf, stocker and feeder producers. Producers in attendance will gain practical knowledge on a variety of topics including animal health, genetics, marketing, nutrition, reproduction, forage and range management and finance.

"Here at the High Plains Journal we've been working on educational events for the past 15 years and haven't ever done anything as big or as grand as we're about to do for the cattle industry in Dodge City," said Holly Martin, HPJ editor and one of the event's organizers, in a recent conversation with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Associate Farm Director Carson Horn. "So, producers can certainly come and get inspired with some new ideas and things they could do back in their herds and then go out into the tradeshow and find those partners to do those things with."

Speakers will help cattlemen and women learn practical ways to improve cattle health on their operations while sustainably maximizing profits on every head. They will also help producers unleash the power of marketing.

Headlining as keynote speakers are Dr. Dan Thomson, a third-generation veterinarian recognized internationally as a leader in beef cattle production and health management and as host of the popular RFD-TV program, "DocTalk;" and Glen Klippenstein, who served the past fiver years as board president for Protect the Harvest, an organization dedicated to the defense and preservation of American freedoms enjoyed by farmers, ranchers, outdoor enthusiasts, and animal owners.

These gentlemen will be joined by other experts during the two-day program. Events will kick off July 31 at 10 a.m., and the last speaker will take the stage Aug. 1 for the closing general session at 3:30 p.m. A special social event is planned for Cattle U attendees July 31 at the Dodge City Roundup Arena from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. Roundup Rodeo starts at 7:45 p.m. Rodeo tickets are available as an add-on to registration for $17 for adults 13 and older and $8 for children 12 and under.
