Minnesota Beef Cow/Calf Days

Minnesota Beef Cow/Calf Days was initiated to give the more than 15,000 cattle producers of Minnesota an opportunity to receive important and timely information on reproduction, nutrition, genetics, management, and industry factors that are useful for managing cow/calf operations. The Cow/Calf Days program is offered over a two-week period at several locations throughout Minnesota.
