NDSU to host third annual Angus University
The North Dakota Angus Association will again partner with the North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center to hold the third annual North Dakota Angus University calf feed-out program.
The program provides two major benefits, according to Chanda Engel, livestock research specialist at the center. Producers receive valuable information on their cattle’s feedlot performance — 182 yearling and fall steer calves were consigned to the feed-out program at the center — and the center is able to use the steers in a feedlot research trial that generates information to help North Dakota cattle feeders.
“No treatments are imposed that would reduce performance of the animals,” Engel said.
The animals selected for the feed-out program should weigh 800 to 900 pounds and be consigned in multiples of four. The cattle should be delivered to the center’s feedlot the first week in June.
