WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue Extension is offering a 10-session program to help beef producers improve the profitability of their operations through effective farm management.

The Indiana Master Cattleman series begins Dec. 1 and meets Tuesdays through Feb. 2. Each session runs 6-9 p.m. at the Carroll County Extension office, 102 N. 4th Street, Flora.

Topics are business planning, marketing, forage, nutrition, herd health, reproduction, genetics and carcass quality.

Participants will have an opportunity to network with other beef producers and industry professionals.
