Educational opportunities for cattlemen are as numerous as breed options and production philosophies. Instructional offerings in a variety of formats can be found at every level of production: local, state, regional and national. Breed associations, extension educators and industry experts all provide learning venues on an ongoing basis. In states where the beef industry plays a major economic role, research centers linked to state universities provide a wealth of archived and current information. Iowa’s Beef Center offers links to information on Economics and Markets; Forages, Hay and Grazing; Feedlot Operations; Cow-calf Operations; Stocker/Backgrounder; Environmental Management; Feed/Corn Co-Products; and links across the state of Iowa.
