WSU to Downlink Cattle Nutrient Symposium

PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University will downlink a national satellite video conference on June 25-26 that will update producers, veterinarians, animal nutritionists and others on the nutrient requirements of beef cattle.

The symposium, which will include several hours of local demonstrations, workshops and panels, will provide the first update in 12 years of the National Research Council’s nutrient requirements.

The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25, and 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26, in the Teleconference Center in the Food Science and Human Nutrition Building on the Pullman campus.

The fee for individuals registering by June 12 is $100 for non-university people and $35 for university faculty, staff and students. The fees increase after that date.

Included in the registration fee is one copy of the NRC Nutrient Requirements of Beef Cattle, a related software package and a reception for participants at the Lewis Alumni Centre on Tuesday night.

Continuing education credit is being offered through the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine to licensed veterinarians who attend.
