New Podcast Targeting California Cattle Producers
Attention cattle producers and enthusiasts. The University of California Cooperative Extension has launched a new podcast just for you: CattleCal. That’s “Cal” with only one “L”, is targeting both beef and dairy producers and will be hosted by assistant feedlot management extension specialist, Pedro Carvalho.
Carvalho… “The focus of my job is the feedlot producer, but the podcast is not only focused on the feedlot producer. There are a couple of series that are going to be focused on people who work in agriculture in general. So we have two episodes that we bring a guest to our podcast and we do two episodes with that person. One is that person just to talk about their career, where they're from, what they have done, how they started working with cattle. What they are doing in their current job. Things that they learned during that undergrad and grad school process and things that they are learning still today. So that's something for maybe for undergrads, people who are deciding to go into an ag career or something like that. It's also good for producers because we always learn listening to people's stories.”
After that introductory episode, the following episodes that month will feature a specific project, a research summary, and a Q&A. Find CattleCal on Spotify, and it will soon also be available on Apple Podcasts.
