Mississippi beef supports the state economy

The Mississippi State University (MSU) Extension Mississippi Master Cattle Program focuses on improving cattle producers’ management and decision-making skills. For every 100 participants in this program, there is a potential to increase total beef cattle production by an estimated $825,000. For every $1 million increase in the value of cattle production, the expected impact on the Mississippi economy exceeds $1.9 million, including employment and tax base. This equates to an annual economic impact of greater than $2.75 million.
