A short, printed handbook was created to provide reference piece publications for producers on components of a sustainable beef cow-calf production system in the Southeast US. The handbook highlights the need for systems-level management decisions on farms related to forages, water, herd management, economics, and climate. The handbook served as the main supporting resource for content for the Systems 360 discussion group program. The publication is also available in a digital form as individual content pieces, which increased accessibility to the public.
