Cattlemen's Boot Camps provide Angus breeders and commercial producers the ability to learn further about all segments of our ever-changing beef industry. These comprehensive educational programs address a wide range of beef cattle production topics. Examples of topics addressed in previous Boot Camps include herd health, nutrition, genetic selection, live evaluation, carcass value, marketing, reproduction, source verification, customer service, feed efficiency and utilization of performance data. Practical hands-on training skill labs help illustrate procedures and proper use of tattoo, freeze brand, ultrasound and artificial insemination (AI) equipment.
To offer this invaluable educational program to as many beef cattle producers as possible, Cattlemen's Boot Camps are held at universities and agricultural college campuses throughout the country. University faculty serve as presenters with staff from the American Angus Association®.
