project’s goal was to educate producers on the use of a beef cow decision tool in
analyzing what they could afford to pay for replacement females. The tool and
outreach efforts also included a means to evaluate the additional economic
benefit of calf and reproductive management practices to the value of a
replacement female. The analytical aspects of the tool were based on the net
present value of all inflows and outflows.
The Excel based tool
was presented at 13 Extension and industry based programs to 579 attendees. Based
on the evaluation results and feedback, the project was a success and goals
were met or exceeded. This is based on 90.75% of post-program evaluation
respondents indicating they were satisfied or very satisfied with the
information they received and 86.71% expected to benefit from the use of the
tool in their decision making. Additionally, 86.32% had an increase in
knowledge in the use of the tool and 42.16% had an increase in knowledge of the
benefits of calf and reproductive management practices.
