BeefWatch Podcast is audio companion to online newsletter
The UNL BeefWatch newsletter (featured at beef.unl.edu) now has an audio companion. The BeefWatch Podcast provides the same timely information as the newsletter, just in a downloadable audio form.
Information in both the newsletter and podcast is geared to helping beef cattle producers improve the sustainability and profitability of their operations. Recent article topics include forage management, herd health, breeding systems, calving, grazing systems, nutrition, economics and marketing, and record-keeping.
“As a busy rancher, you have limited time to spend reading,” explained Extension Educator Jay Jenkins of Cherry County, part of the Nebraska Extension Team behind BeefWatch. “You often have time available to listen while in the pickup or tractor cab. The BeefWatch Podcast brings you the information you need in a format you can use.”
