Replacement heifer development is a key enterprise to a cattle operation. “Proper selection as well as reproductive and nutritional management during heifer development leads to heifers being efficient, profitable and retained in the cow herd over a long period of time,” says Patrick Davis MU Extension Livestock Field Specialist. Furthermore, efficient and profitable cows with longevity lead to optimum operation profit potential. 

MU Extension is working with Joplin Regional Stockyards to hold a heifer development workshop. Dr. Jordan Thomas, MU Extension Assistant Professor in Animal Science and state beef cattle reproduction specialist, and Dr. Eric Bailey, MU Extension Assistant Professor in Animal Science and state beef cattle nutrition specialist will lead the workshop discussion. Discussion topics include:
• How do you select a replacement heifer?
• What are the best options for nutritional management of a replacement heifer?
• How do you manage for heifers to breed back and stay in the herd as cows?

The workshop will begin with dinner sponsored by Joplin Regional Stockyards at 6:00 p. m.

Registration deadline is March 6th.
