Beefs Days 2014 he Situation Beef Days is a traditional educational training workshop the NDSU Extension Service has conducted for over 20 years. This workshop is a county based program conducted in collaboration with Adams, Bowman, Dunn, and Stark/Billings counties to provide current, relevant topics for todays beef prod ucers. Assessment of the programs value and short term impacts were determined in 2014. Extension Response Four Beef Day workshops were conducted in Rhame, Hettinger, Medora and Killdeer, North Dakota in January 2014. Topics presented include navigatin g the marketplace consumers vs production, managing todays rangeland dealing with invasive grasses, focusing on replacement heifers selection tools and strategies, livestock water quality, and fecal sampling and understanding NUTBAL . An evaluation was conducted for each workshop to determine value of each topic and knowledge gained . A follow up survey was conducted five months after the workshops to determine if any of the ideas and practices learned at the workshop ere implemented. Impacts A t otal 104 individuals, including ranchers, bankers, and US Government employees participated in the region al program. Participants indicated the following impacts: 94 percent stated the workshops were valuable or very valuable to their operation, business or job. 98 percent increased their knowledge level of one or more of the topics presented. Fecal sampling/NUTBAL had the greatest increase in knowledge gained going from being not very knowledgeable to somewhat knowledgeable, followed by managing todays rangeland with an increase from neutral in terms of knowledgeability to somewhat knowledgeable. All subjects presented had an increase in knowledge gained, ranging from 25 to 75 percent , depending on topic. 33 percent shared the informa tion gained from the workshops with other people five months after the workshops, with 22 percent implementing change as a result of the workshops. Almost 39 percent implemented ideas learned from the workshop five months after the workshops. The bigges t impact to participants occurred from the topic managing todays rangeland, with 61 percent of those surveyed incorporating what they learned into their operation. They incorporated new grazing systems that increased stocking density and improving graz ing efficiency of the resource, increasing the economic return from each acre of rangeland.
