The University of Minnesota Extension Service will be hosting a six part webinar titled Summer Beef Essentials. "This webinar series will focus on different considerations to prepare for parasite and fly control, summer stressors on the cow herd, pasture considerations and weed management, and practices to help producers extend the grazing season."

I guess we saw some of the stressors of beef cattle last weekend when we saw high temperatures in the low 90's. This early in May at least there were no flies yet! Looking over the news release from the University of Minnesota I did not see any mention of a cost to register for the Summer Beef Essentials webinars. You do have to pre-register to get the Zoom Link.

The series will be on May 10, 13, 17, 20, 24 and 27 from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm. You need to register by 5:00 pm the day before the webinar and you can do that at z.umn.edu/SummerBeef.
