In order to graduate and become or recertify as a Master Beef Producer you must complete a minimum of 7 classes/credits. You may become Master Beef Producer certified by attending each of these classes. Many of you have already attended classes and received credits and may not have to attend all of these classes to complete your certification. For example, if have already attended 3 classes or beef educational program this past year, you will only need to attend 4 of these classes to complete your Master Beef Producer certification. If you have already attended 7 classes or educational program credits this past year, you may only come to the Dinner and Graduation on March 5 to receive your certificate, cap and sign. In order to graduate with Master Beef Producer certification, you must register and pay the $75.00 fee regardless of how many classes you have previously attended. In order to register, you need to visit our office and complete our Master Beef Producer registration form and must pay the $75.00 fee by Friday, February 21. You may call us and give us you registration information and mail your fee by Wednesday, February 19. Please make checks payable to UT-TSU Extension – Coffee County.  

Remember, Master Beef Producer Recertification for 50% cost share is required if your most recent Master Beef Producer certification was completed prior to 2016. For example, if your most recent Master Beef Producer certificate has a date in the year 2015 or earlier, you need to get recertified now to get 50% cost share on the 2019-2020 TAEP program. If you are not sure of the date of your most recent certification, call our office at 931-723-5141 and we can look it up.

If you have questions, you may reply to this e-mail or call our office at 931-723-5141.
