    Development & Management of Beef Replacement Heifers Webinar

    The SDSU Extension Beef Group will be conducting a five-part series of webinars focused on the development and management of beef replacement heifers. The Beef Group thinks this program will be useful for both beef producers but also for youth, particularly those who are wanting some more advanced opportunities to learn about beef production.

    The session dates will be January 14th, 21st, 28th,  February 11th and 18th beginning at 12:30 PM CST and lasting for one hour. The cost for the webinar series will be $25 to participate in all five webinars. There will be an opportunity for live question and answers during the webinar via a chat box and each session will be recorded for later viewing in case someone can’t log in at the scheduled time.
