Beef 509 Course coming in February

Beef 509 Course in February

Beef production is more than just feeding cows. Understanding what consumers value and look for when purchasing meat can help livestock producers increase their profit potential and become more competitive in the cattle industry.

Beef 509 is a two-day course that will provide beef producers with a more in depth look at their industry. I went through this class a few years ago and found it to be very informative and an eye opener.

“This workshop can offer producers a view beyond the farm gate to the consumer’s plate,” John Grimes, Beef Coordinator for Ohio State University Extension said. “This very hands-on class lets producers see the other side of the business by evaluating actual carcass differences, understand how these differences translate to economic value, and to learn how their farm management decisions can impact their financial bottom line.”

To help bridge the knowledge gap, beef experts with the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences are offering a two-part Beef 509 series Feb. 20 and 27, designed to help producers take advantage of increasing consumer demand for high-quality beef products as well as position themselves for continued long-term success. Each workshop runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The program will take place at Ohio State’s Animal Sciences Building, 2029 Fyffe Road, Columbus.

Topics to be discussed include:

-Beef harvesting procedures and innovations.

-Carcass aging.

-Grid pricing.

-Beef industry update.

-Taste panel and shear force evaluation.

-Genetic and environmental carcass merit factors.

-Beef carcass grading and fabrication.

-Live, carcass and boxed-beef valuations.

Registration is $150 by check made payable and sent to: Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation, 10600 U.S. Highway 42, Marysville, Ohio 43040. For more information on the Beef 509 program, contact Grimes at 740-289-2071, ext. 242, or grimes.1@osu.edu.
