71st Annual Beef Cattle Short Course

Breeding the Florida Herd for Quality

 Wednesday, May 4 - Friday, May 6

The 71st Annual Beef Cattle Short Course will return to the traditional in-person full event this year, May 4-6th.  We will resume the pre-pandemic format, starting Wednesday after lunch (1:00 PM) and adjourning Friday at noon. This year’s Short Course will have a double focus: female reproduction and traceability. The program includes lectures from influential external speakers, outstanding University of Florida faculty members, short presentations of research updates, hands-on activities and social gatherings with delicious food. Parallel to the main program, the Department of Animal Sciences will offer the Annual UF Brahman Bull and Brahman Heifer Sale, including on-site viewing of animals. Overall, we are looking forward to greeting you in-person, shaking your hand, and delivering industry relevant, science-based information to you.
