Who We Serve
Our agents and staff serve the people of Lonoke, Carlisle, Cabot, England, Ward, and other Lonoke County towns by providing free non-biased, research-based advice for farmers and families.

Beef Production in Arkansas
The average beef cattle herd size is 35 head with 80 percent of the farms having less than 50 head. About 97 percent of the beef cattle farms in Arkansas are family owned and operated.
Beef cattle producers who use our recommended management practices improve their beef cattle efficiency and profits. The Animal Science department uses educational activities including county programs, field days, electronic news articles, beef/forage field days, demonstrations, ration balancing, 300 Day of Grazing Program, and more, to educate Arkansas cattle producers on best practices.
