Sign Up for eBEEF.org Beef Cattle Genomics and Genetics Information Quarterly Newsletter

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 12:02:20 CDT

Sign Up for eBEEF.org Beef Cattle Genomics and Genetics Information Quarterly Newsletter Megan Rolf, Oklahoma State University Extension Beef Specialist, writes in the latest Cow/Calf Corner newsletter.

A group of six beef cattle genetics extension specialists from land grant institutions have created a new website dedicated to beef cattle genetics. eBEEF.org is part of the national eXtension program; the goal is to be a one stop site for science-based beef cattle genetics and genomics information.

Team member Dr. Alison Van Eenennaam from the University of California – Davis, states, “We often get many of the same questions from producers and we decided to create some up-to-date fact sheets and internet resources that summarize the peer-reviewed literature about a variety of topics related to beef cattle genomics and genetics.”

The site contains factsheets based on peer-reviewed literature, short frequently asked question (FAQ) video clips, relevant conference recordings and webinars, a blog and links to other useful beef-related sites.

Team member Matt Spangler from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln adds, “Genomics is a relatively new technology, and there are many questions about how best to incorporate genomic information into genetic evaluations. We try to present this information in a way that makes sense for cattlemen.”

The group plans to produce a quarterly newsletter detailing current information of interest to the beef cattle genetics community. To sign up for the eBEEF newsletter, log onto the eBEEF.org site and go to the eBEEF updates section. Select “Click here to subscribe to our quarterly newsletter”.

For more information or to make suggestions please contact any of the eBEEF.org team members. The other team members are Dr. Darrh Bullock, University of Kentucky; Dr. Jared Decker, University of Missouri; Dr. Megan Rolf, Oklahoma State University; and Dr. Bob Weaber, Kansas State University. Contact information for all team members can be found at eBEEF.org.
