Intermountain Beef 3910 Workshop - Collaborating with Industry in Extension Education
Journal of Extension
A 2-day hands-on workshop was developed in collaboration with industry partners. The objectives are to provide participants with a basic understanding of the beef grading system and Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) and to demonstrate how these principles relate to them and the beef industry as a whole. Each workshop is limited to 20 participants, with sponsorship from various industry groups, including the Utah Cattlemen's Association. Participants are taken through various exercises, including live animal and carcass evaluation and fabrication of carcasses into wholesale and retail product. Tours and seminars supplement the workshop, with speakers from all segments of the beef industry.
