Beef Cattle

Learning and engagement

This Black Angus cow-calf unit mirrors the small-scale grass-fed beef cattle operation that is typical in North Carolina. Students and small-scale beef cattle farmers learn how to manage and market beef cattle, including breeding through artificial insemination, pasture management, selection and feeding.

For more about education in bovine science and management, check the curriculums in the Department of Animal Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences.
