May 15—FORT VALLEY — Beef cattle producers seeking to improve their operations can tune in to a free ZOOM meeting conducted by Fort Valley State University's Cooperative Extension Program.
On May 25, from noon-1:30 p.m., "Extension Ag Updates: Marketing and Production of Beef Cattle," will be simulcast on Facebook live (facebook.com/pg/FVSUCAFST/videos).
FVSU Extension Agent for Talbot County Bobby Solomon will moderate the event.
"By tuning in, the farmer will learn how to directly market and sell their products to consumers for a higher price," Solomon said.
Furthermore, the FVSU Extension agent said if farmers use the information discussed at the workshop, their operations could improve with better, fresher quality meats.
Topics for discussion include, "Grass Fed Beef Production and Marketing," "Rules and Regulations on Selling Meat as Individuals" and "Outreach Services" provided by FVSU's Meat Technology Center.
Representatives from Tennessee State University, the Georgia Department of Agriculture and FVSU's Meat Technology Center will conduct the presentations.
