The Department of Animal Science is excited to share a new hands-on learning experience for students interested in beef cattle management and marketing. This unique experience for undergraduate students, the heifer development program, was developed by beef farms manager, David Bruene, along with Associate Professor Brad Skaar and Professor Dan Loy who teach the beef production and management/marketing classes in the Department of Animal Science.
