Cattle roam the UGA Agricultural Research Farm in Winterville, GA, where the Livestock Poultry and Grain Market News Southeast Employee Event is held to help U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agriculture Marketing Service (AMS) market reporters refresh their Livestock Correlation skills .

Correlations promote uniform grading skills and ensure that livestock are evaluated the same throughout the country.
