Tifton Campus Upcoming Events

The Master Cattlemen’s Program delivers a practical, science-based production management curriculum to Georgia’s beef producers.  University of Georgia Extension Agents work with industry experts to deliver classes on beef cattle topics such as nutrition, facilities, forages, economics, marketing, foreign animal diseases, agro-terrorism, general herd health, external parasites, reproduction, Beef Quality Assurance, sire selection, record keeping and Georgia Cattlemen’s Association goals.  The materials are intended to help Georgia beef producers be more profitable and sustainable. Participants meet one night a week for eight weeks.  Over the eight week period, attendees learn and discuss current issues, meet industry experts, and network with area producers. The program is held in the fall and winter of each year, and rotate between the four regions of Georgia. 2024 SOUTHEAST GEORGIA MASTER CATTLEMAN PROGRAM Mondays beginning January 22nd at 6PM Location: Toombs County Extension Office - 300 Bulldog Road Lyons, GA 30436
