The OSU Master Cattleman program

The OSU Master Cattleman program is a comprehensive educational curriculum designed to enhance participants' proficiency in production and business management.

The program costs $75 and is offered to Oklahoma beef producers.  The fee is to cover the costs of the course materials.  Participants receive an Oklahoma Beef Cattle Manual, instructional material, a producer certificate, Master Cattleman farm gate sign, and a notebook with the Master Cattleman logo.

The objective of the Master Cattleman program is to enhance the profitability of beef operations and thw quality of life of beef cattle producers.  Producers equipped with vital information on all aspects of beef production, business planning, risk management, and marketing can build and maintain sustainable businesses.

    1. Nutrition and Management
    2. Quality Assurance and Animal Health
    3. Reproduction (cow-calf producers)
    4. Natural Resources
    5. Business Planning and Management

Approximately six specific topics are available within each discipline.  Each topic provides the equivalent fo one or two credit hours.  The program allows flexibility to tailor the curriculum to fit local needs and interests.  Proficiency in each topic is demonstrated by successful completion of a brief quiz.

OSU Cooperative Extension educators will plan and orgaize the Master Cattleman educational series and select the specific curriculum offered.  They also will guide participants through common managment decisions, while providing up-to-date research in an easily understood format.
