For more than 100 years Tuskegee University (TU) has played a leading role in ruminant research and education, serving as a resource for farmers involved in cattle production throughout the state of Alabama, with an emphasis on providing assistance to small and minority producers. To continue that tradition, TU works to address the challenges of today’s cattle producer through the TU Beef Cattle Program.  The program is designed to provide information to Alabama cow-calf producers, helping them be the very best in the country, proving information how to improve their profitability and position the industry to be competitive with other states. The program is led by a team of Tuskegee University Extension specialists and agents, with the support and involvement of representatives of state level agencies, businesses and organizations that have an interest in the state’s cattle industry.   The program is designed to educate new and experienced producers alike, bringing forth new information and techniques for all.

The TU Beef Cattle was developed for the express purpose of providing training for Value Added Practices for Small Beef Cattle Producers.  The program is composed of three seminars/symposia that include an annual beef cattle seminar in the fall followed by two other events that include the annual Professional Agricultural Workers Conference (PAWC) in December with a symposium on “Current Trends in Cattle Production” (learn more at pawc.info) as well as the Small Farmers Conference held in February with a symposium on “Value Added Strategies: A Road Maximizing Profitability in Sm(ALL) Cattle Operations” (learn more at https://www.tuskegee.edu/programs-courses/colleges-schools/caens/conferences-workshops/farmers-conference).
