Graduate students enrolled in animal science (cattle reproduction, genetics, and nutrition) or veterinary programs are encouraged to share research topics, become more knowledgeable about the beef industry, create linkages for future employment, and participate in the Applied Reproductive Strategies in Beef Cattle (ARSBC) symposium.
Lauderdale Scholar Application Process
The Beef Reproduction Task Force (BRTF) welcomes abstracts reporting findings focused on improving reproductive performance of beef heifers, cows, and bulls. Graduate and(or) veterinary students are encouraged to submit their abstracts using the form below on or before midnight July 1, 2022. Research may have been previously presented at another research conference.
