Master Beef Producer training sessions held
The Master Beef Producer program is an educational opportunity designed to provide information to Tennessee cow-calf producers to help them be the very best in the country, improve their profitability and position the industry to be competitive with other states. During the course, University of Tennessee Extension specialists and local Extension agents covered the following topics: managing and planning for success, marketing, developing genetics to the needs of the industry, carcass merit, feeding the beef herd, forage production, reproduction in beef cattle, herd health, cattle handling and behavior, environmental concerns for beef producers, food safety and management of the beef herd.
A total of 70 producers participated in the clinic and received a certificate of completion for the Master Beef Producer Program sponsored by UT Extension Service.
