Integrity Beef Alliance to Host Program Introduction SeminarTue, 24 Apr 2018 10:37:34 CDT
Cow-calf producers can boost their production efficiency by joining the Integrity Beef Alliance, which simplifies management decisions and increases the marketability of calves.
Cattle producers will have the opportunity to learn more about Integrity Beef Alliance during an Introduction to Integrity Beef Seminar from 4 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, May 15, at the Noble Research Institue Pavilion. Noble Research Institute consultants will discuss the two Alliance programs, a terminal calf program and a replacement female program, as well as record-keeping and member benefits. Current Alliance members will also share their perspectives during a Q&A time.
The Integrity Beef Alliance program, which the Noble Research Institute established in 2000, is a comprehensive beef production system founded on best management practices. The Alliance aims to produce high quality, uniform, preconditioned calves that meet the needs of the next supply chain owner and, ultimately, consumers, while also improving returns for ranchers through value-added traits. Members typically see at least a 50-pound increase in weaning weights and even higher sale weight advantages when compared to their own herd prior to entering the program.
“Integrity Beef emphasizes progressive, sustainable management methods, ranch stewardship and humane care for all livestock,” said Robert Wells, Ph.D., Noble Research Institute livestock consultant and Integrity Beef Alliance executive director. “ Large and small ranches benefit equally from participating in the Integrity Beef Alliance. Through uniform and elevated standard management practices, Integrity Beef producers’ cattle far surpass industry standards for performance, quality, health and behavior.”
Membership is not geographically limited to any area of the country. Any producer who is willing to adhere to the quality standards and protocols of the Alliance is invited to inquire about admission. Members become participants, if not already, of the Noble Research Institute’s no-cost consultant program.
There is no registration fee, but preregistration is requested. Dinner will be provided. For more information or to preregister, please visit ww.noble.org/eventsor call 580-223-5810.
