In the coming weeks, BEEF magazine will debut its redesigned and enhanced Web site - We’ve retooled to make it more comprehensive, user-friendly and valuable to readers. The redesigned Web site offers one-stop buttons to information-rich, category sections such as genetics, markets, health, nutrition and pasture/range, to name a few. Other new features include easy-to-find links to updated resources on feed composition values, the latest in fencing products and suppliers, animal ID suppliers, estate planning and biosecurity. In addition, weather has been added to the site, as well as a host of other handy links to BEEF magazine's monthly content, its four newsletters and four Web sites.

The whole idea is to make fresher, more attractive, more useful and easier to navigate for our readership. So watch for further announcements.
