WSU and UI to Offer Beef 300 short course

PULMAN – Production of high quality beef and beef products will be the focus of the second Beef 300 short course scheduled Jan. 7-10 at WSU and the University of Idaho.

The event is offered by WSU and University of Idaho Extension, and the WSU Department of Animal Sciences in cooperation with the Washington Cattlemen’s Association, the Washington Cattle Feeders Association and the Washington State Beef Commission. The short course will take place on both the WSU and Idaho UI campuses.

Participants will learn how environmental, nutritional, genetic and managerial factors contribute to meat quality as well as how meat quality influences the price producers receive for cattle and beef products marketed through various outlets.

The hands-on workshop for producers, feeders and marketers is designed to increase their understanding of beef quality and marketing and enable them to make decisions to improve profitability, competitiveness and wholesomeness of the food products they are producing.

Registration is $150 per participant and covers meals, materials and parking. The course is limited to 32 participants. The registration deadline is Dec. 15.
