Got Beef? Getting the Most Out of Dairy Cattle

March 23, 2006

WOOSTER, Ohio -- Dairy cattle are not only raised for milk production, but they are also raised for beef. With over 260,000 milk cows present in Ohio, getting quality out of the quantity is a challenging aspect for cattle producers.


Ohio State University Extension will be hosting a "Got Beef?" program on March 28 from 7:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. at Fisher Auditorium on the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center campus in Wooster, Ohio.

The program is designed to provide information on quality beef production from dairy cattle, primarily Holstein steers. Topics of discussion will include basic nutrition, management and quality control. OSU Extension cattle specialist Stephen Boyles will lead the discussion, along with beef nutritionist Larry Berger from the University of Illinois.

The fee is $5, payable at the door. Refreshments are included. For more information, contact Diane Shoemaker at (330) 263-3799 or
