2016 Beef School

The locations will be in the Hillsboro area and in Adams Co. this year, as we were in Brown last year. The dates are January 19, February 2, and February 16. These are all Tuesdays and will begin at 7:00 p.m. sharp.

On January 19, 2016 the focus will be squarely on the markets and marketing including outlook, and risk management. During the second session on February 2, the attention will turn back to the basics in an effort to bust some myths that may be negatively affecting our bottom line. The series will conclude on February 16 with a focus squarely on the end product.

Members of the OSU Extension Beef Team will take turns addressing some of the management questions and comments we’ve received during Beef School sessions over the years. This will be a fast paced look at a variety of profit centered concepts including calving windows, genetic choices, breeding management, crossbreeding and economic traits that will be the most meaningful in coming years.
