Cattlemen learned how to improve profits in Southeast Beef Cattle Marketing School sessions held this spring in Gaffney and Marion.

Topics included how to develop a marketing plan, predict a cash price, add value to a calf crop and develop marketing alternatives.

The program, coordinated by Brian Beer, Clemson Extension area livestock agent, was a cooperative effort by Clemson University, the University of Georgia, Auburn University and the University of Florida. It was sponsored by the Southern Region Risk Management Education Center.
