Texas beef producers have an opportunity June 29-30 to update management practices to produce safe, top quality products.
Beef 706 is a free quality assurance program scheduled for the Everett E. Turner Range Animal Science Building, E. U.S. Highway 90, on the Sul Ross campus at Alpine.
It is slated to begin at 7 a.m., June 29-30, with the first day’s activities culminating at 7:45 p.m. and the second day ending by 1 p.m.
Dr. Dan Hale, AgriLife Extension meat specialist at College Station, said the Alpine course, as well as a “sister” course at College Station in August, teach about safety and quality issues producers can learn about and apply to their operations.

“Delivering a safe, consistent, quality product is the best way to increase beef consumption,” Hale related in his promotional material on the course. “Producers should be aware that the day-to-day management of their cattle, whether we’re talking about branding, weaning, handling or even vaccination plans, all impact the quality and wholesomeness of beef.”
