Southeast beef cattle producers are encouraged to tune-in to the upcoming UF Beef Cattle Economics Webinar Series, hosted by the Range Cattle Research and Education Center and the South Florida Beef-Forage Program. The webinar series is being conducted to discuss ways to increase your herd’s production, performance, and profitability. Cattle producers saw record feeder calf prices and profits in 2014 that changed the dynamics of the cow-calf industry. The goal of this webinar series is to provide timely production and economic information that can help producers operate in this volatile marketplace.
