Large parts of Canada and the Northern Great Plains are currently facing mild to severe drought.


With feed supplies low and demand high you may be considering non-traditional feeds for your cattle. If you are thinking about grazing something new, questioning your water quality, wondering about animal health concerns you should be watching out for, considering purchasing greenfeed from non-traditional crops, or have general questions about managing cattle during a drought, here is your chance to get answers straight from the experts.

The BCRC is putting together a panel of nutrition and animal health experts to answer your drought-related nutrition questions. Questions will be answered live during an upcoming webinar on July 27th at 7:00pm MST.

There will be some time for Q and A during the live webinar, but the best option for having your questions answered is to submit them ahead of time by including them in the question box when you register, commenting below, or email your questions to info@beefresearch.ca with the subject title Drought Webinar.
