During this 1 ½ hr. webinar she will talk about types of beef businesses, what to consider when choosing beef cattle, facility, and infrastructure difference and how to augment your current facilities, what to include in a business plan for beef, and additional resources available to you that can assist in transitioning and/or exploring transition.
