Technical Abstract: An ultrasound demonstration was conducted for participants (~ 110 people) of the Arkansas Cattle Grower’s Conference, Hope, AR. Evaluation of live animals with ultrasound technology allows beef producers the ability to make selection and management decisions. Specifically, ultrasound at the conclusion of grazing will allow producers to make decisions earlier in the production cycle increasing profitability. Ultrasound can be a useful tool for improving genetics, increasing beef quality, and generating more efficient and productive management systems that will benefit the quality of beef produced by Arkansas cattle producers.
