Ride the Range Beef Cow Symposium XXI bus

A western states tradition began in 1969 at Chadron, NE. That is when and where the first Range Beef Cow Symposium (RBCS) was held. Since then, the event has been held every other year. The RBCS is organized by the animal science departments of Colorado State University, the University of Nebraska, South Dakota State University, and the University of Wyoming and rotates locations between Colorado, western Nebraska, western South Dakota and Wyoming. The Colorado State University (CSU) Beef Team has chartered a bus to attend this year’s RBCS and would like to invite cattle producers and industry professionals to join us.

The bus will be making boarding stops in Pueblo, Adams County, and Ft. Collins on Nov. 30 and returning on Dec. 3. The CSU Beef Team has also blocked a set of rooms in the hotel where the symposium is headquar tered.

The CSU Beef Team is covering a portion of the bus cost, the net cost per seat for each rider is $80. This must be paid in advance. CSU has negotiated a room cost of $74 (plus tax) per night. That is for either single or double occupancy. Hotel rooms for bus riders can be booked through our group when you reserve your bus seat. You will need to pay the hotel directly upon check-in. — WLJ
