This monthly series will begin on Tuesday, January 27 and continue on February 10 and February 24, and will start each evening at 7 p.m. Each session will be broadcast locally via an internet link. The programs will address some of the most important issues currently facing Ohio's beef industry. Rapidly changing forces are constantly shaping the beef industry's landscape, and successful producers need to stay abreast of changes to remain competitive.

The primary themes that will be discussed in the 2015 school include sustainable beef production, beef animal handling and facility design, manure management and fertilizer application issues for beef producers, the future of antibiotic use in beef cattle, and capitalizing on the historic beef economy. Specific topics and speakers for each of the sessions will be communicated to the host educators as soon as the final schedule is set, and they also will be posted in an upcoming issue of the Beef Cattle Letter.

All potential hosts are asked to provide the name and address of the host location and their pertinent contact information including office phone, cell phone, and e-mail address. There is a $75 site location fee to help cover expenses associated with the school. Please make checks payable to “The Ohio State University.”
