MCCOOK, Neb. (AP) -- Ranchers can get advice on managing their cattle herds during drought at the next tri-state cow-calf symposium and trade show in January.

The free biannual event will be held in McCook on Jan. 8. The event is a cooperative effort of universities in Nebraska, Kansas and Colorado.

Keynote speaker James Robb will provide an overview of how the drought has affected cattle numbers and the current cattle market. Robb is director of the Livestock Marketing Information Center in Denver.

Other topics will be covered at sessions throughout the day, including the nutritional implications of drought, herd management in drought and beef cow genetics.

Ranchers must register by Jan. 2 to attend the symposium at the Red Willow County fairgrounds by calling (877) 674-6947 or emailing red-willow-county(at)unl.edu.
