Beef cattle producers who want boost their profit potential and become more competitive in the cattle industry can learn how by attending the 2014 Ohio Beef Cattle School series Jan. 28, Feb. 18 and March 11, 2014, taught by experts from Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
The three-session program covers a broad range of topics including factors that influence reproduction efficiencies and grazing, said John Grimes, beef coordinator for Ohio State University Extension and a member of the OSU Extension Beef Team. The overall goal of the program, he said, is to help producers expand their beef operations and take advantage of the increasing consumer demand for high quality beef products.
“We hope to equip producers with the information they need to keep them competitive in the beef cattle business and help them make their operations more profitable,” Grimes said. “Right now, beef is a high-priced commodity because of supply and demand and producers need to implement production practices that will insure that the beef they produce is a good, quality product to eat.
“We want to help producers take advantage of the fact that because of supply and demand issues impacting the beef industry now, prices for beef are high and grains and feed prices are going down. We also want to encourage folks to remain in the business and expand where possible.”
The program will be taught by Ohio State University Extension and Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center researchers and educators. OSU Extension and OARDC are the outreach and research arms, respectively, of the college.
