About UI Beef Research and Extension

University of Idaho Extension addresses needs of Idaho’s beef cattle industry. We have a diverse and distributed network of teaching, research and Extension faculty.

Beef in Idaho

Over 7,700 ranch families in Idaho produce $2.4 billion in cash receipts. Beef is the second largest agricultural sector in the state. Regionally, Idaho ranks first in cattle and calves and second in number of beef cows and fed cattle.


Over 30 faculty on the Moscow campus, at research stations and in Extension offices work on issues concerning the beef industry. Faculty collaborate on planning, implementing and evaluating research and Extension programs through the Extension Land and Livestock Team and the University of Idaho Rangeland Center.
