The High Plains Nutrition & Management Roundtable is an annual meeting hosted by the local ARPAS chapter, comprised by beef industry professionals from the tri-state area (CO, WY, NE) who share a common interest in improving the beef industry through improved nutrition and management practices. Each year, the meeting is hosted in the tri-state area by professors from Colorado State University (CSU), University of Wyoming (UW), and University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), along with industry professionals who desire to collaborate by sharing emerging technologies, peer-reviewed research, and ideas. The goal is to maintain an open dialogue between the academic, industry (or private sector), and producer segments who are in pursuit of making better beef for our consumers. We always intend that the meeting and exchange of new information is also worthwhile to beef producers, graduate students, end-consumers, and anyone who shares an interest in the success of the beef industry or who has a passion for constantly improving how we approach animal nutrition and management efforts. Please join us for our next meeting!

Please save the date for the next High Plains Nutrition & Management Roundtable, hosted by University of Nebraska in Scottsbluff, NE on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017. The theme for this year’s meeting is based around updates on the new NRC Recommendations by a list of high-quality key speakers. The highlight of each meeting is the graduate student poster competition, where current beef nutrition and management research is presented by the animal science graduate students from CSU, UW, and UNL. The meeting will be worth at least 4 continuing education (CE) credits through ARPAS. If you are a graduate student, instructor, producer, or industry professional who is interested in becoming an ARPAS member and acquiring continuing education credits, you can also take the exam the day of the meeting.
