The project was originally conceived by the Western Extension Marketing Committee for extension and classroom audiences. The original notebook of materials was published in 1996. Economists from across the U.S. participated in this effort. Both the American Agricultural Economics Association and the Western Agricultural Economics Association recognized the original materials for excellence in 1997 when both associations gave the project their outstanding group extension award.
and new articles (identified below as 2002) were coordinated as a joint
effort sponsored by the Livestock Marketing
Information Center and the Western Extension Marketing Committee.
For the original set of materials, direct dollar contributors were USDA-CSREES, Farm Foundation, University of Wyoming, Utah State University and University of Nebraska. The project was also supported by the Livestock Marketing Information Center, National Beef Cattlemens Association, the respective authors and the state Cooperative Extension Services of their institutions. Chris Bastian (University of Wyoming) and DeeVon Bailey (Utah State University) coordinated the original effort. The March 2002 articles were coordinated by DeeVon Bailey (Utah State University), with assistance from staff of the Livestock Marketing Information Center.
