The BEEF 509 program is a program to raise the awareness level about the food we broduce, BEEF, and the reasons why it sometimes misses its mark with consumers’ palates and producers’ pocketbooks. It will take place on two Saturdays in January.

The first day will be Saturday, January 13 and the second day will be Saturday, January 27. Each day will be filled with programs beginning at 9:00 a.m. and concluding in the early evening.

The program will take place at the OSU Animal Sciences Building in Columbus. All the same information and activities from past 509 programs will be included. It will be critical to attend both days as participants will be assigned to teams that will work together for both days of the program. The live animal evaluation, auction and grid discussion will take place on January 13. Carcass grading and fabrication are among the activities planned for the 27th.

A maximum of 32 spaces will be available on a first come first served basis. If interest in BEEF 509 exceeds the 32 spaces provided, names will be held and applicants notified of upcoming sessions.

The registration fee for each BEEF 509 participant is $150. The program is the result of a partnership with the Ohio Beef Council, The Ohio State University Extension and The Ohio State University Department of Animal Sciences. These entities will be funding all remaining costs associated with the BEEF 509 program.
