Beef Feedlot Roundtables a success

Posted: Updated:

A Nebraska university is helping cattle feeders in their time of need.

The University of Nebraska Lincoln's Extension center held their Beef Feedlot Roundtables today at the Gering Civic Center.

Extension Educator Tom Holman says the industry is losing money.

The roundtables aim to help these cattle owners by giving them the most up to date research on cattle feeding.

Holman says they teach the owners cattle feeding efficiencies and can hopefully help them make some money.

"Cattle contribute, is the largest contributor economically to the panhandle from agriculture. It's important because we have objective research," Holman said.

Holman says the Extension Center has three roundtables across the state and each is designed for the different regions.
