Topic: Results and Observations of the 2016 National Beef Quality Audit
About Jesse: Jesse Fulton is originally from the Northeastern corner of the bluegrass state along the Ohio river in Lewis County, KY. His interest in agriculture began on his grandparent’s dairy operation and from there grew by lending a helping hand on neighboring cow/calf operations.
After completing his Bachelor’s in Animal Science at Morehead State University, Jesse went on to pursue his Master's focusing in meat science at South Dakota State University under the advisement of Dr. Amanda Blair.
Some of Jesse’s research included the effect of copper and zinc source on pre-weaning performance of cows, health and performance of suckling calves, and post-weaning feedlot performance, carcass composition and meat quality of calves.
He is now the Associate Director of Producer Education with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association in Denver, CO. His duties include, managing Cattlemen’s College, overseeing the 2016 National Beef Quality Audit and leading the development of the Beef Quality Assurance online training modules.
