February 28, 7pm–9pmWhat
The 2017 Ohio Beef School webinar series concludes by scrutinizing the demands of the consumer and whether the entire production system – cow/calf through the feedyard and to the retailer – is meeting those demands and what it will take looking forward to achieve that goal.
Dr. Justin Sexten, supply development director for certified Angus beef, will discuss “Meeting consumer demand: Perspective from the feed yard to the consumer.” He will challenge the audience to consider questions such as How do feeder, packer, grocer and restaurateur demands influence the decisions the cow-calf manager makes? Does an end-user focused cow herd work on the farm? What opportunities exist to capture value added processes?
The webinar will be broadcast live beginning at 7 p.m. from 24 host locations throughout Ohio as well as one in West Virginia. A list of the host locations and contact information is available.
