Summary and Implications
Recent, new instructorship of the senior-level beef systems management course (An S 426) presented the opportunity to conduct a thorough evaluation and potential revision of the course curriculum. The objective of this study was to conduct a structured, critical evaluation of the course using a modified Delphi method, and utilize the results to update course objectives and student outcomes. Based on stakeholder feedback, the course is implementing heightened emphases on business and financial planning in addition to the basic managerial principals in the beef production process.
