Comparing Educational Programs To Improve Beef Production
This paper compares current Extension educational program efforts to improve the economic performance of the beef enterprise in Kentucky with the Sustainable Grazing System that has been developed and successfully applied to improve the performance of the beef industry in the High Rainfall Zone of Southern Australia. This comparison investigates problems addressed by each educational effort as well as different methods used by the programs to help producers improve the performance of the beef business. This comparison identifies potential difficulties faced by the Kentucky program that have been successfully addressed by the Sustainable Grazing Systems program in Southern Australia.
