Oklahoma State University Rural Veterinary Practice and Beef Sustainability Webinar Series Oklahoma State University Extension and animal medicine experts are launching a series of Thursday evening webinars to explore rural veterinary practice issues and beef sustainability.

Each Zoom-based session, hosted jointly by the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine and Extension faculty, is approved for one hour of continuing education by the Oklahoma State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. Producers as well as vets are welcome to bring their questions to the free series, said Dr. Rosslyn Biggs, beef cattle Extension specialist at the veterinary college.

The series is scheduled to begin 6-7 p.m. Aug. 27 with a presentation about the impact of recruitment and retention of food animal vets on the U.S. food supply. It will be led by Dr. Christine Navarre of Louisiana State University.

Subsequent sessions on Thursday nights will each last one hour. Scheduled topics include: an integrated beef cattle program for veterinarians, led by Biggs and Dr. John Gilliam, both of OSU; a secure beef supply plan, led by Dr. Danelle Bickett-Weddle of Iowa State University, Dr. Becky Brewer of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Dr. Alicia Gorcyzca-Sutherland of the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry; and beef sustainability, led by Sara Place of Elanco Animal Health.

The September 3 webinar will focus on the Integrated Beef Cattle Program, a USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant project. This program seeks to offer intervention strategies for rural sustainability by expanding veterinary skills and knowledge of herd health, food nutrition, forage management, reproductive management, and other common needs of beef producers.

Integrated Beef Cattle Program aims include:
• Develop, administer, and analyze data surveys in order to fully evaluate the shortage situation including geographic range of veterinarians.
• Develop a series of educational modules for veterinarians focused on Beef Cattle Herd Management.
• Connect veterinary students with participating rural veterinarians to help sustain rural veterinary practices.
