Sam Odom of Summit Livestock Facilities talks about Feeding Cattle Indoors at Eastland Feed & Grain Beef Meeting
We welcomed the opportunity to have Sam Odom speak at the 2014 Eastland Feed and Grain Inc. Beef Meeting on Wednesday February 12th. And we greatly appreciate the work Kelly Flack of Eastland did in preparing for and conducting this informative meeting.
It was wonderful to see the number of beef producers in attendance and the high level of interest they have in feeding cattle indoors. It was a “standing room only” turnout at the Naaman Diehl Auditorium in Mt. Carroll IL.
In addition to giving Sam’s presentation on best practices for cattle feeding facility design we had the opportunity to get to know Dan Larson Ph.D. of Great Plains Livestock Consulting Inc. who presented new information on how to optimize cattle performance for indoor cattle facilities as well as cow/calf nutrition and management.
If you wanted to attend but could not please feel free to request a copy of the materials that we distributed at the meeting. These included a good overview of the content of Sam’s presentation. To get yours please contact Sam Odom at 815.827.3750 or email him at SamOdom@summitlivestock.com.
