Invited Guest Lecturer: Dr. Jeffrey Hall
Invited Guest Lecturer:
Dr. Jeffrey Hall

We are thrilled to have Dr. Jeffery Hall as our invited guest lecturer from Utah State University. He will discuss some of the common problematic vitamin and mineral deficiencies that affect cattle. In his role as the toxicologist at the Utah Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, for the past 21 years, Dr. Hall has analyzed thousands of nationwide forage, diet, tissue, and bodily fluid samples for mineral content in order to delineate deficiencies and poisonings.

Included in the registration price for this one-day symposium are two laboratories. We will have a toxic plant lab that will help the attendees identify and discuss clinical findings of various toxicities that could be lurking in the pasture. In addition, a calf pulling lab is available. Instructors will help the attendees to assess and correcting presentation, posture, and position of the calf within the birth canal.
