Grass to Grid Program for Cattle Producers

The Grass to Grid program provides Arkansas adult and youth cattle producers an opportunity to retain ownership of calves through feedlot finishing and marketing. The goal of this program is to provide small to medium size cow/calf operators the opportunity to experience the finishing phase of the cattle industry while gaining herd genetic insights.

In collaboration with the Tri-County Steer Carcass Futurity and cooperating Iowa feedyards, participants receive individual calf growth and carcass data summaries. Information gained from this program can help direct breeding and marketing.
