The XXVII Range Beef Cow Symposium will return to South Dakota Nov. 16 and 17 at the The Monument in Rapid City. Known for its wide-ranging topics, demonstrations and practical applications, the symposium has been held biennially among the four cooperating states — Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming — since 1969.
“The Range Beef Cow Symposium is an excellent opportunity to connect with nationally renowned beef experts on an assortment of cattle production topics,” says Julie Walker, Professor and South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension Beef Specialist and a member of the planning committee for this year’s event.
