2020 Silage Beef Webinar Series Begins July 7
2020 Silage for Beef Conference will be four webinars.
AMES, Iowa — Building on the success of previous cooperatively offered one-day silage conferences, Iowa Beef Center, University of Nebraska—Lincoln and Lallemand Animal Nutrition planned a similar opportunity for this summer. And while the high caliber and quality of topics and speakers continues, the delivery method is different. The event is now a four-part webinar series, each with a specific topic and speaker.
Iowa Beef Center director and Iowa State University animal science professor Dan Loy said organizers hope the change will allow more producers to view and access the information, at times that work for them.
“We plan to record all four of the webinars and make those recordings available through our website,” Loy said. “Even if you can’t participate in a live session, the information will still be available to all. Registration is free.”
The series is set for Tuesdays, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Central time. Dates are July 7, July 14, July 28 and August 4.
By date, here are the session topics and speakers.
- July 7, Silage Production and the impacts of dry weather and limited water,
Jourdan Bell, PhD, Assistant Professor & Agronomist, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and Research
- July 14, Making silage under adverse conditions,

“This is a great opportunity for us to bring current research information to the cattle industry in Nebraska, Iowa and beyond,” Loy said. “Hopefully this online opportunity increases the reach of this information to a national and international audience.”
