This Delphi study identified what should be included in 4-H beef instructional materials from the viewpoint of knowledgeable adults. A series of three questionnaires was mailed to four groups: parents of outstanding livestock participants, 4-H specialists, Extension beef specialists, and beef industry representatives. The respondents identified 31 subject-matter and 30 life-skill topics that were important to include in 4-H beef manuals. Emerging topics to consider were concerns of consumers and the environment. Results of the study would be useful to those who are developing materials and activities for youth with livestock projects.
