UT Extensions News – Master Beef Producer Graduates

March 22, 2024

By Katie Martin, Smith County Extension Agent

Twenty-six producers from Smith and Trousdale County recently graduated from the Master Beef Producer Course. The course included information on topics such as reproduction, nutrition, forages, genetics, marketing, and herd health. Extension Agents, Extension Specialists, and industry experts served as speakers to share their research, real world experience, and answer any questions. A meal was provided each night for the participants thanks to several local businesses. Meal sponsors included Smith Farmers Co-Op, Wilson Bank & Trust, Farm Credit Mid-America, Citizens Bank, Smith County Farm Bureau, and Smith County Cattlemen’s Association.

The graduates enjoyed a steak dinner upon graduation and were given a Master Beef Producer farm sign and hat along with their certificate.
