Beef Cattle Boot Camp

Today was the annual Beef Cattle Boot Camp at Mississippi State. It was a gorgeous day out - about 80 degrees and sunny! We met out at the beef unit this morning with producers from across the state and covered a variety of topics from vaccinations to trouble shooting various reproductive problems producers may encounter. It was a blast and definitely better than being cooped up in the office today. The camp was very much "hands on" and producers were able to practice tubing a bottle calf, giving injections, inserting a CIDR, and taking blood samples from a vain in the tail.
Here's a pic of a little girl who let us borrow her calf for a day...
