USDA Cattle Webinars

According to the article, the “webinars are designed to assist cattle producers, feeders, and others in the U.S. fed beef supply chain who want to better understand the reporting, delivery, and grading of feeder cattle, live cattle, and carcasses, particularly relating to CME live cattle futures.” The first webinar, slated for Tuesday, November 17th, starts at 7 pm eastern standard time, and it’s expected to last until 9 pm. Then, each Tuesday evening will have another free, virtual webinar up to December 15th.

Guest speakers at the webinar include speakers from each of the three regional USDA Cattle and Carcass Training Centers (CCTCs) —West Texas A&M University, Colorado State University, and the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center—the CME Group, and USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), according to the article.
