Organizer says beef production convention offers sessions important to industry

Jim Freeburn

Drought management, wildlife and livestock diseases – organizers say the Southeast Wyoming Beef Production Convention in Torrington has something for everyone in the beef industry.

The conference is 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, at the Rendezvous Center at the Goshen County Fairgrounds.

“Whether they want information on prices, beef production, range management, wildlife or marketing, it is all there,” said Jim Freeburn, one of the conference organizers and operations director at the James. C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center (SAREC) near Lingle. “We even have information on the latest in wheat varieties.”

If he were a producer, “My only problem would be choosing between all of the good presentations in the concurrent sessions,” he said.

The convention, hosted by UW Extension, the Wyoming Stock Growers Association and SAREC, has been held during years between range beef cow symposiums.

Registration is $15 and includes lunch. Payment the day of the event will be taken at the door.
