Other conference speakers will discuss flexibility in ranching, controlling wildlife damage on rangeland, development programming in livestock, new frontiers in mineral nutrition, long and short-run cattle, market challenges and opportunities, drought impacts on groundwater, ranching communication, and a systems approach to beef cow nutrition and reproduction.
