Extension: Increasing the efficiency of beef production minimizing the environmental impact
My Extension Program is entitled: “Increasing the efficiency of beef production minimizing the environmental impact” and its main objective is to increase the adoption rate of best management practices that lead to an increase in the profitability of beef production systems in the State of Florida while minimizing the impact on the environment. These goals will be achieved by a combination of tools such as In-service Trainings, development of extension documents, development of decision-aid tools for mobile devices, field days and presentations at producer meetings. In my extension program I attempt to engage graduate students as much as possible to provide them with exposure to an aspect of our profession that is often not considered as a career path. This approach has been highly rewarding for both students and producers.
