First off, I have created a Facebook page for my blog and extension program. If Facebook is your thing and you enjoy beef genetics and genomics, please like my Facebook page and share it with your friends. https://www.facebook.com/SteakGenomics

Second, new blog post announcing the Cattlemen's Boot Camp we will be hosting this July. Let me know if you have questions about the Boot Camp.

Third, I have received complaints about being a troll on another message board . (I guess this is karma for me, knabe? :wink: ) I assume those of you interested in my blog, click on the new posts. Those of you not interested in the blog scroll on by. If this is not the case and this thread bothers you, send me a message and I will stop posting about my blog on Ranchers.net.

I appreciate all of the visits to my blog by members of this message board.

Thanks,
Jared Decker
If your just posting you posts on your own thread like you do here and not hijacking thread how do they figure your a Troll/ :?

Your posting articles of interest to some cattlemen and if they are interested it's there for the reading. i sure can't see a problem in that. :D

I hope people using ranchersnet are sensible enough to either appreciate your ranch/beef related information, or to pass it by if they don't want to read it. Keep up your good information!

It looks like the Angus Boot Camp is entirely conducted by current by Univertiy staff
If so I will request for a refund from the boot camp

Hay Feeder-
I'm sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the program for the boot camp. Ashley Mitchell is the contact person for the registration.

Just to clarify, Tonya Amen from the American Angus Association will be presenting and a member of the CAB staff will be presenting. Wes Tiemann from the Angus Association will also be in attendance and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Just out of curiosity, who would you like to have seen as presenters and what topics would you like to have covered that will not be?

Thanks for the feedback.

A Steak in Genomics: Bruce Golden gave a great talk about economically relevant traits (ERTs) in the beef industry. Golden really challenged the ways breed associations, seedstock providers, and commercial producers report and use EPDs. Be sure to read this post and leave your comments.
