What People Are Saying About
Beef 706

“I have attended the Beef Short Course several times as well as several cow calf clinics in various locations.  They all have given me a wealth of information about cattle operations; however BEEF 706 brings it all together in a hands-on atmosphere”

“It should be illegal to own cattle in Texas until you have attended the BEEF 706 program.”

“Beef 706 teaches producers how cattle are graded on the hoof; the processing operation; fabrication of meat; how to determine profits and losses on individual animals; and understanding what the consumer will experience.  In one intense short course, it shows the effect of everything producers do and how it will affect the final consumer so we can help provide a good eating experience for the final cosumer.  This is probably the best course I have attended relating to foods.  It has given me information that I can use to improve my opperation.”

Dear BEEF 706 Graduate,
I wanted to share some results from the BEEF 706 programs held in 2014.  We had over 140 producers attend these trainings and they reported managing well over 70,800 head of cattle.

Based on surveys responses, we know the following:

  • 100% of you said that as a cattle producer you shared the responsibility for customer satisfaction of beef products.
  • 80% of you planned to stop an old practice based on what you learned at BEEF 706.
  • 90% planned to adopt a new practice based on what you learned at BEEF 706.
  • 92% of producers said they would make or save money based on what they learned, with an average of $37/head of cattle.

Now that’s progress in the right direction and could have a huge economic impact for Texas ranchers!

 However, the most important number I want to focus on is that

100% of you said you would tell your fellow producers

about what you learned and would recommend that they attend BEEF 706.

 It’s almost time for another BEEF 706 program and we need your help!  Please spread the word by passing along this invitation to other producers who would appreciate learning more about their beef industry.  The next sessions are Jan 13-14 and 15-16, 2015.
