The program is a partnership of the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture, Tennessee Department of Agriculture, and Tennessee Farmers’ Cooperative. Our facility serves as an off-site destination for heifer development, making room for increased numbers of mature cows and increasing income potential per acre. Consigned heifers can be purchased at one of our annual heifer sales. We also host field days and other educational events to train area producers on best management practices.
Our facility works closely with the Tennessee Beef Heifer Development Center to research beef heifer development, reproduction, and fertility.
Our Beef Heifer Development School event originally scheduled for October 2020 has been cancelled due to safety concerns associated with COVID-19.
