An Exchange of Ideas & Devon Cattle
We are pleased to announce that Gene Meitler will be our speaker at the 2019 Upper Midwest Devon Exchange
Gene will be sharing from his 47 years of experience as a cattle man and line-breeder. Gene has selected his herd for the Jan Bonsma cow type; he will be sharing the Dr. Jan Bonsma system with us and the benefits it offers to the grass-fed beef producer. Gene will also have a Q@A session that you won’t want to miss!
Gene graduated from Kansas State University in 1972 with a major in animal science and special interest in genetics. He started his cattle herd in 1972 and has been intensely linebreeding Herefords and Angus. Meitler Cattle Company in Kansas, raises small herds of registered cattle and 500 commercial cows which are black-bodied and white-faced crossed from the linebred herd. Most of Gene’s real education came from the school of hard knocks and he’s spent many years reading and learning from others.
