BEEF 706

Beef 706 is a hands-on experience for beef producers to learn about safety and quality issues affecting their product; interact with professors and extension specialists in meat science and beef cattle production; and encourage interactive dialogue with peers and experts. Beef 706 focuses on impacting beef producers’ management decisions by exemplifying the results of the National Beef Quality Audit (NBQA). This audit, funded in part by checkoff dollars, takes place every five years and serves as a benchmark for the cattle industry.
