The Nebraska Beef Cattle Report is an annual publication describing the research results of experiments conducted by UNL faculty in the beef industry. All reports include an implications section describing how the results of these experiments apply to beef cattle production. This year’s report contains 48 articles summarizing research on cow/calf, growing cattle, resource management, feedlot, and meat products. Within each section topics include nutrition, reproduction, management, and technology. The purpose of this report is to give cattle producers, consultants, and extension personnel a research based decision making tool.
