Alabama Pasture to Rail Program

The Alabama Pasture to Rail Program is an educational program for cattle producers. The purpose is to give cattle producers the following opportunities without the investment required to finish an entire pen of cattle.
1. To obtain individual animal data for post-weaning performance and carcass merit that can be used to assist producers with selection decisions pertaining to existing breeding programs.
2. To educate cattle producers on recommended health practices and custom feeding programs.
