Thank you sponsors, supporters and friends. This past year has definitely been a challenge. It was a tough decision to cancel our 2020 Missouri Livestock Symposium. We missed seeing and talking with our neighbors and friends, and bet you have too.


We hope you enjoyed our Zoom and recorded presentations this winter, and also that you picked up a few things useful to your operation. All of the sessions are on our YouTube channel and displayed below.


We have big plans to return December 3 & 4, 2021, stronger and wiser. We hope you'll join us.

See ya' in Kirksville in December.
