It has been a few months since the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service began the Cattle Contracts Library pilot program, and the agency is looking for feedback. Beef feedlot producers are invited to attend a listening session either in person or virtually.
The Cattle Contracts Library is a pilot program designed to increase market transparency for cattle producers. During each listening session, AMS will present an overview of the current pilot followed by an opportunity for participants to share their feedback on the usage and value of the Cattle Contracts Library.
The June listening sessions are as follows:
Wednesday, June 14, 2023, 1 p.m. CT, at the Iowa State University Wallace Foundation Learning and Outreach Center at 53020 Hitchcock Avenue, Lewis, IA 51544
Friday, June 16, 2023, 1 p.m. CT, at the USDA Cattle & Carcass Training Center on the campus of University of Nebraska-Lincoln, in the Loeffel Meat Science Laboratory, Lincoln, NE 68583
Friday, June 23, 2023, 8:30 a.m. CT, at the St Onge Livestock Co., St. Onge, SD, located at 11693 Sale Barn Rd, St Onge, SD 57779
Tuesday, June 27, 2023, 1 p.m. CT, in the El Vaquero room at the historic Santa Fe Depot in Dodge City, KS, located at 201 E Wyatt Earp Blvd, Dodge City, KS 67801
There is no charge to attend, but seating is limited. Advanced registration for virtual attendance via Zoom is necessary. Each session will be recorded, and those recordings will be posted on the USDA-AMS website.
