This year’s Montana Nutrition Conference and Livestock Forum, “Challenges and Opportunities of Cow Herd Expansion,” will be held April 19-20 in Bozeman at the GranTree Inn, 1325 N. 7th Avenue.

The conference is organized by the MSU College of Agriculture’s Department of Animal and Range Sciences in conjunction with the Montana Feed Association.
