Beef farmers will have a chance in October to learn more about how to market the meat from their animals during a workshop offered by the Penn State Extension.

Beef cattle producers can attend a two-day workshop on Oct. 22-23, 2019 at Penn State University Park. The workshop also is supported by the Pennsylvania Beef Producers Working Group.

The “Beef Cattle Short Course” will feature the science and practices aimed at improving beef marketing as well as topics related to beef cattle production. The course will include lectures, keynote speakers, and hands-on demonstrations from experts in the cattle industry.

Topics include live cattle evaluation, marketing beef cattle, meat quality, nutrition and pricing structures.

The cost of the two-day course is $25 per participant. Space is limited to the first 60 registrants. Attendees are expected to be present both days. Lunch will be provided.

To register, visit or call 877-345-0691. For more information, contact Tara Felix at 814-865-0065 or [email protected].

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
