Adding value pays off for Virginia cattle producers

“Having the ability to add value to Virginia’s beef cattle operations is critical to the sustainability of Virginia agriculture and rural communities,” said Scott Greiner, Virginia Cooperative Extension beef cattle specialist.

With more than 1.4 million head of cattle across the commonwealth, Virginia’s beef cattle industry is big business.

But while the cattle market has been favorable over the past few years, producers understand the need to continually improve their operations to stay competitive.

The Virginia Quality Assured certified feeder cattle program provides producers with the means to add value to their cattle, enabling them to receive premium prices for
their calves.
