You will greatly enjoy learning from our trainer this month Dr. Anibal Pordomingo. Dr. Pordomingo has been studying grassfed cattle and cattle feeding practices for over 20 years. "I am originally an Agronomist but I got my graduate degrees in Animal Science so most of my work actually has to do with animal feeding, animal grazing, meat quality at the end of the production system. I am also usually interested in the systems themselves. So yes originally I am from the Agronomy side with a emphasis on beef cattle production." Make yourself comfortable and have pen and paper ready with pause button close at hand; you will not want to miss any notes on this training with Dr. Pordomingo. We will look at the meaning of forage quality for finishing (which is not the same as forage quality only). We will discuss an understanding of the genetics we deal with. The impact of steady gains on the growing-finishing program (consequently the constraints restriction -compensatory strategies imposed on a grass-fed finishing program). What we need to understanding about conserved and deferred forages. As well as designing a finishing program (which is different from simply finishing cattle on the farm).
For a professional background of Dr. Pordomingo, hear his background as told by him:
Dr. Pordomingo shares with us his view of the current state of the cattle industry in Argentina. Argentina use to be one of the best places in the world for grassfed beef, according to Dr. Pordomingo, that has been changing.
