Ten videos have been added to the Tennessee Cattle Lane video series. The videos, along with their with accompanying fact sheets, form an on-line library offered by the beef program of University of Tennessee Extension and the UT Department of Animal Science.
More than 30 beef production and management topics are now featured in the series.
The new selections focus on animal identification, calf management, stockpiling fescue and animal nutrition.
Tennessee’s cattle and calves industry represents the largest of the state’s commodity groups, accounting for more than $500 million in cash receipts and numbering more than 2.2 million head. This industry ranks ninth in the nation in terms of herd size. Cattle producers operate in every county in the state.
The Tennessee Cattle Lane project borrows its name from the series’ developer, Clyde Lane, a beef specialist with UT Extension. The series offers educational opportunities for beef cattle producers and those interested in the process.
