Webinar – Finishing Holstein cattle: a market opportunity for Quebec?

Thanks to various efforts on the part of the Producteurs de bovins du Québec, finishing protocols have been written and adapted for Quebec Holstein farms. These are based on an American model, a market in which over 5 million dairy beef cattle are produced each year. The need to seriously analyze the potential of developing such a sector in the province is growing.

The fed cattle sector joins with the cull cattle and bob calf sector in presenting this first webinar (in French) in the series on Holstein finishing. This introductory session focuses on the success factors and key points for interested producers to know, in addition to presenting an analysis of profitability in a typical market context.
