Beef Cattle Management

This program allows specialization in the area of beef cattle management in a one-year intensified program.  It provides knowledge and experience in the management of both cow/calf and feedlot enterprises.  There is a demand for industrious young people with practical experience to fill positions of responsibility as herd managers, assistant herd managers, and other livestock-related jobs.

Agriculture, in this rapidly changing era, requires aggressive young people who have specialized training in modern scientific practices.  While the demands for success are great, the opportunities for success are limited only by a person’s desires or imagination.
