beef, evaluation, focus group, hands-on, producers
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the SDSU Beef 2020 program on increasing participant knowledge and impacting production practices. Unlike the pork or poultry industries, the US beef industry is not vertically integrated, and as a result the beef supply is managed by producers in a variety of roles. While these producers are knowledgeable about their specific sector, some may not be as familiar with the other aspects of beef production. South Dakota State University hosts an Extension program entitled Beef 2020 with the goal of bridging this knowledge gap.
