The Department of Animal Science and University of Minnesota Extension are proud to present the 72nd Minnesota Nutrition Conference, the Upper Midwest's premier program for livestock nutritionists and feed industry professionals to update their knowledge of beef, dairy, poultry, swine and horse nutrition.

This popular educational event at the Holiday Inn in Owatonna, Minnesota, features the latest concepts in livestock feeding and nutrition presented by local and national researchers and industry professionals.

The program kicks off on Tuesday morning, Sept. 20, with a pre-conference symposium sponsored by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association. Hans Stein, University of Illinois; Jeff Coulter and Hans Jung, University of Minnesota; and Grant Crawford, University of Minnesota Extension, will present topics on the theme "Corn–2011 and Beyond.”

In the general session on Tuesday afternoon, updates on livestock research being conducted at the University of Minnesota will be presented by faculty researchers, graduate student research assistants, and extension educators.

You won't want to miss the reception/social hour, sponsored by Alltech, following the program on Tuesday evening.

Day 2 of the conference (Wednesday, Sept. 21) offers three sessions running concurrently: Ruminant and Non-Ruminant Nutrition (full day), and Equine Nutrition (half day). Look for the preliminary program agenda and a list of speakers on the conference website.
