to the 60th Annual Florida Beef Cattle Short Course for the
cattle industry! The Beef Cattle Short Course is considered
one of the premier beef cattle educational events in the
Southeast and Gulf Coast regions with significance
nationally and globally. The course addresses issues for
beef cattle enterprises at an elevated level of management
skill with practical applications for every beef cattle
producer, in Florida and beyond. The course focuses on
unique challenges facing our beef industry; beef production
issues, urban growth, global competition, changing consumer
demands, and economic and environmental sustainability.
Every year we lead the industry covering subject areas and
topics prior to those issues becoming management concerns.
Participants get to hear contrasting, alternative, and
complimentary ideas about the beef cattle enterprise. The
2011 Florida Beef Cattle Short Course promises to continue
the tradition of being the best educational event for beef
cattle producers in the Southeast.
Short of paying a professional
consultant, there is not a better source of information for
beef cattle producers than to attend the Florida Beef Cattle
Museum of Natural History
