The Great Plains Grazing project recently hosted “Adapting Grazing Management for Future Needs”; a conference targeted for beef cattle producers across Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The two-day event brought together researchers and specialists from K-State, Oklahoma State, University of Oklahoma, USDA, and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association to discuss strategies and emerging technologies to help cattle producers manage their operations more effectively in a changing climate. The conference highlighted the resilience and productivity of beef cattle systems, dynamic grazing management, methane emissions, weather extremes and climate, and sustainable beef production from the perspective of consumers and industry.
