Advancing the Agriculture Economy Through Innovation – March 18-20th, 2015, Lory Student Center, CSU Campus, Fort Collins, CO
Annual Nick Petry Workshop
The Annual Nick Petry Workshop was a great discussion that allowed guests to hear from professionals in various aspects of the beef industry- each speaker had a different specialization within the industry. Our goal was to discuss current and future trends for the Beef Industry and explore potential new markets for the Beef Industry. We had some insightful presentations from important figures in the Beef Economy such as Kay Cornelius, Central Business Director and National Account Manager Niman Ranch, James Robb, Head Economist for the Livestock Marketing Information Center, Dr. Milt Thomas, John E. Rouse Chair of Beef Cattle Breeding and Genetics, and our own Director, Dr. Kraig Peel, Associate Professor of Animal Sciences. Audio and Video Presentations to come!
