Advanced Master Beef Program

Posted

This year, there were 19 graduates in the Advanced Master Beef Program. Master Beef Producer and Advanced Master Beef Producer Programs are requirements for the Tennessee Agriculture Enhancement Program. In order to help producers fulfill those requirements, UT/TSU Extension agents in Bradley and Polk County offices offered the Advanced Master Beef Producer Program to cattle producers in surrounding counties. Seven classes and a BQA certification are required to receive the certificate of completion, a requirement for receiving reimbursement. The classes were from Sept. 5 to Oct. 17 at the Bradley County Extension Office. BQA training was offered with the classes. Topics covered were Fencing of fields, Reproduction, Marketing and/or Cuts, Health, Wildlife on the Farm, Forages, and Cattle Stress and Handling.
