from Morning Ag Clips on 5/11/16 – SUNY Cobleskill and Harvest New York invite beef producers to hone their skills in a one-day Beef Cutting Seminar on May 25, the first in a new series of meat production classes to be offered throughout the year. The course will be taught by SUNY Cobleskill faculty, and specialists from the Harvest New York program of Cornell Cooperative Extension.
The all-day class is designed for producers who are selling to markets, would like to learn to cut their own meats, or are interested in learning about cuts of beef. It will cover which cuts are most profitable, quality of meat, what products consumers want, and marketing strategies. Participants will learn about the cuts of beef and marketing in a morning classroom session before applying that knowledge in the afternoon to cut a cattle carcass.
