AMBP Logo Final.png     The Tennessee Master Beef Producer Program is an educational opportunity designed to       provide research-based information to the beef producers of Tennessee. This course will       provide in-depth information on topics such as reproduction, nutrition, forages,                   industry issues, the end product, and facilities. It is open to both current Master Beef           Producers as well as those who would like to become certified.

      For more information contact Chris Hicks at 615-735-2900.

For those needing Master Beef recertification this year (meaning you took the class prior to 2018), you have 3 options for recertification. Keep in mind your BQA must be valid in order to be recertified, and we will have BQA recertification the first night of the face-to-face class. 

I also want to emphasize that anyone can watch any of the Master Beef Webinars free of charge. The $75 fee is only if you need recertification credit.
