Beef Laboratories

Student Stocker Project

The stocker phase of the cattle industry is a very important segment of beef production in our area and in California. The stocker enterprise gives students the opportunity to gain insight and experience in this segment of the beef industry. Students gain experience in buying, caring for and managing, and marketing of stocker cattle.  In addition, they gain experience in the management of natural resources.
