Feed industry professionals will have the opportunity to update their knowledge of beef, dairy, poultry, swine and equine nutrition at the 71st annual Minnesota Nutrition Conference Sept. 21-22 in Owatonna, Minn.

The conference, sponsored by the University of Minnesota’s Department of Animal Science and University of Minnesota Extension, will include speakers from around the world discussing the latest concepts in animal nutrition.

Featured topics will include new technology and tools for nutritionists as well as updates on research at the University of Minnesota. The conference is split into three sessions for people interested in ruminant, non-ruminant and equine nutrition.

This year’s conference continues a 71-year tradition of bringing the latest information to feed industry professionals on feeding livestock.

“In these times of razor-thin margins, livestock producers need to implement the latest feeding technologies to keep a place in the industry,” said Noah Litherland, conference co-chairman.

Attendees of this conference will hear about the latest feeding approaches from both academia and industry.

Registration is $195 through Sept. 7 or $230 after that, with a $100 rate for students. Watch for detailed information about speakers and schedules at: www.ansci.umn.edu/mnc.html.
