Save the Date: K-State to Host 2017 Applied Reproductive Strategies Workshop

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Make plans now to attend the 2017 Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle (ARSBC) Workshop Aug. 29-30. Hosted by the Kansas State University Animal Sciences and Industry Department and K-State Research and Extension, the event will be headquartered at the Hilton Garden Inn and Conference Center in Manhattan, Kansas.

Considered the premiere national event in beef cattle reproductive management, the meeting has a long history of providing the latest information on the application of reproductive technologies and includes a range of topics related to cow herd reproduction such as nutritional interactions, management and male fertility.

The meeting is open to anyone with an interest in beef cattle reproduction including producers, technicians, veterinarians and professionals in related industries.

Program details have not been released, but look for future announcements at KSUBeef.org. Extensive online coverage of past meetings can be found at www.appliedreprostrategies.com.

The meeting is organized by the Beef Reproduction Task Force, a multi-state Extension group made up of specialists from Kansas State University, University of Missouri, Iowa State University, University of Nebraska, South Dakota State University, University of Florida, University of California-Davis, University of Idaho and Oregon State University.

The Beef Reproduction Task Force hosted the first ARSBC Symposium in 2002 at Manhattan, Kan. Since that time, symposia have been conducted at 16 locations across the U.S.

"We are looking forward to bringing this meeting back to Kansas," says Sandy Johnson, K-State Department of Animal Sciences and Industry associate professor and extension beef specialist.
