Cowbuyer Out and About

Over the past several weeks, our field reps have been very busy running the roads looking at great cattle. Last week we looked at some very nice Herefords in South Carolina. This Fall we will have these bred and open heifers, as well as a herd bull prospect available in an online only auction.

That same week, we looked over the Tanglebriar Estate Simmental herd that will be dispersed in late July. If you are looking for some great Sim-influenced genetics, look no farther. From solid black and black baldy, to solid red and traditional marked Simmentals, this sale offers something for everybody. We will be selling bred and open heifers, bred cows, cow/calf pairs and bulls. If you would like more info on these cattle and this sale, give us a call or check back soon as we will continue to post more information as the catalog is completed and we get closer to the sale.

We also had the opportunity to look at some nice Angus females, and an Angus bull that will be online soon. At the end of this week we will be heading down to look at a very nice set of Angus bulls that should be available on Cowbuyer.com in the next few weeks.

Looking to buy? Looking to sell? Look no farther, Cowbuyer.com and Cowbuyer LLC can help you find the cattle you are looking for in your herd, or sell the cattle that you need to move. We are based out of North Carolina, but have reps working across the country. Contact Dustin Rogers, Director of Marketing at 336-409-5498 to talk about your cattle needs.

Cowbuyer completes Master of Beef Advocacy Program

Cowbuyer LLC Director of Marketing Dustin Rogers completed the Beef Checkoff Funded Masters of Beef Advocacy (MBA) Program May 1, 2009. The program consists of six, 1-hour core courses for the 2009 fiscal year: beef safety, beef nutrition, animal care, environmental stewardship, modern beef production and the beef checkoff. The complete program consists of a reading exercise, followed by a short “your story in your own words” essay assignment, and concludes with an open-book quiz. At the end of the MBA program, producers are given a homework assignment to complete one of three exercises – with media, online or public speaking. The program won’t stop there. MBA alumni are encouraged to conduct team outreach on issues management topics.

"The cattle industry needs advocates out there to tell the story that beef is a safe, nutritous and wholesome meal choice, unlike what consumers constantly hear from many opposition groups. The MBA program has been well written to provide its students and alumni with the necessary knowledge to speak with media groups, online resources and the general public about beef, the benefits of utilizing beef as part of a healthy diet, and producers continuous work as stewards of the land." Says Rogers.

Producers wanting more information on the Master of Beef Advocacy program can contact Dustin Rogers at dustin@cowbuyer.com, Daren Williams at dwilliams@beef.org, 303-850-3346 or contact their state beef council.
