Update: The webinar went off very successfully and was archived. You can review the archive online.

There will be a 'webinar' focused on high feed costs on 18 August 2008 at 8:00 PM EDT. That's midnight GMT. The topics are listed below. Each will have an internationally recognized expert give a 10 minute presentation, including Powerpoint slides, and then the presentation will be followed by a question and answer period.

  • Strategies to Lock in Milk and Feed Prices—Dave Byers, VA veterinarian/nutritional consultant
  • Feeding Strategies with $7, $8, or $9 Corn – Mike Hutjens, Univ IL Professor
  • Alternative Feedstuffs for Corn and Soybean Meal – Randy Shaver- Univ WI Professor
You need a computer with speakers and an Internet connection. You will type in your questions in a box in the webpage, and the expert will answer them.

You can download a copy of the presentations from Slideshare.

This webinar is a part of the DAIReXNET Project in the new US eXtension effort that utilizes the latest in Web 2.0 technologies to provide objective, research-based and credible information on timely and important topics.

Hope that helps.
