This is a flagship educational activity entitled Beef 706. Each session of Beef 706 involves approximately 30-40 participants from various segments of the beef industry. They learn about the importance of producing a more consistent and high quality beef product through a series of hands-on lessons presented by various meat science faculty, staff and graduate students. For
example, the participants are divided into groups, allowed to select live cattle (through video) and then follow those cattle through grading and a hands-on cutting session which allows the participants a chance to experience first-hand the differences encountered in carcass composition. Their resulting information is then evaluated in terms of the value differences calculated between animals, Participants will see cattle value from market steer to fabricated boxed beef.
