Producing Quality Beef Workshops

What physical traits enhance or detract fed cattle values? Why do some fed cattle sell for more or less than others? What opportunities did the latest beef quality audit find? These topics and more will be the focus of four “Producing Quality Beef” workshops slated at four locations around the state in February and March. The workshops will begin at 10 a.m. with a live cattle evaluation and discussion by a panel of cattle buyers representing packing plants that harvest fed cattle from Wisconsin and the upper Midwest. The discussion will include what type of cattle have the greatest demand based on consumer preferences and traits that add or lower fed cattle value. Adding to the cattle evaluation will be a discussion on how mud, manure, and gut fill impact dressing percent, and the impacts that mobility/fitness for transport have on cattle value. There is no cost to attend, and lunch is provided. Pre-registration is requested seven days in advance.  

Dates and locations for the workshops are as follows:  

  • Feb 9th Bonduel Equity Livestock Sale Barn, 455 N. Cecil St. Bonduel WI, 54107
