Half Day of College Educational Event
2013 Half Day of College
The Corona Range and Livestock Research Center hosts a Field Day every three years, the next slated for June 2014. During the two years in between we host an educational program called "Half Day of College". This program will host three one-hour concurrent educational sessions dealing with the most current topics of interest chosen by the members of our advisory committee. Check out the Events and Announcements page located to the left for dates of our next program.
2010 Half Day of College
Our 2010 Half Day of College was a great event! There were 62 guests that enjoyed a perfectly prepared brisket lunch. Three presentations were on tap for the day; Solar & Wind Energy for the Landowner - Options, Costs, & Return, By-product Feedstuffs - Nutrition, Costs, & Concerns, and Animal Health - Trichomoniasis (Trich). Paul's Veterinary Supply (Roswell & Albuquerque) sponsored cold bottles of water and the highlight at the end of the day - Ice Cream Sandwiches. Also, We would like to thank the Crown Cowbelles for our 20 year relationship in providing education and enjoyable conversation over a wonderful meal. Further, the Corona FFA provided set-up and take down of chairs and tables. Without the help of all of our supporters above, guest speakers, Department of Animal and Range Sciences, Cooperative Extension Service, Agriculture Experiment Station and Corona staff, spouses and children we would not be able to pull off such a successful event.
