The deadline to register for the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Dairy Team Annual Dairy Discussions Seminar is Nov. 27. The seminar is Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the ISU Extension and Outreach Sioux County office in Orange City.

This year's focus is making genetic decisions profitable, with discussions on crossbreeding, pure-breeding, genomics, sexed semen and how to maximize profitability in the dairy industry.

The two key presentations will include:

- "Dairy Crossbreds: Where is the profit at?" by Amy Hazel, junior scientist at the University of Minnesota

- "Application of Genomics and Sexed Semen to Maximize Profits" by James Koltes, assistant professor of animal science at Iowa State University

There will also be a producer panel, which will focus on breeding decisions and profitability. Local panelists will include Eric Van Wyk, Dykstra Dairy, Maurice; Roger Stensland, Stensland Bros. Dairy, Larchwood; Darren Davelaar, Country Edge Dairy, Inwood; and Leroy Eggink, Great Heritage Holsteins, Sibley.

There is no fee to attend, thanks to the sponsorship of Sioux Dairy Equipment, and Van Zee Enterprises. To register, visit form.jotform.com/4Hregion1/dairy-discussions-2019, or call 712-737-4230.
