The way we interact and produce food is already changing due to COVID-19. This session is devoted to answering questions producers and veterinarians have around their key role in maintaining a stable, secure, and cost effective food supply.
Due to the impact of COVID-19 on all segments of beef cattle production, producers are faced with exploring options that likely require retaining ownership of their cattle for longer periods of time. Therefore, it is imperative to meet the changing nutrient requirements of both the herd, as well as weaned cattle. This includes knowing the nutrient requirements for different stages of production, procuring feeds, and understanding stocking capacity.
