Succeeding with Grass-Fed Beef: Human Health, Carbon Sequestration, and Farm Viability
Would you like to build the health of your soil; produce great meat; improve your family's health; and combat climate change? You can do all of thisand make a profitby raising 100% grass-fed beef. Join us for a one-day conference with Ridge Shinn, an expert in grass-fed-and-finished beef production, who will share with us the critical lessons he has learned: How to produce beef with minimal capital investment (no land, no barn, no tractor.) How to build a beef or dairy herd that will thrive on grass and hayno grain ever. How to build soil health and fertility. How to manage grazing and extend it through the winter. How to market your meat. Why 100% grass-feeding is the way to go for human and animal health, soil health, climate stability, and sustainable rural economies. You can benefit from Ridge's years of experience in every aspect of beef production. As a young man he was a herdsman on a dairy farm and the founding director of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (now, The Livestock Conservancy). Later he became Vice President of a Connecticut slaughterhouse, and then founded a meat company (Hardwick Beefstill going strong). Subsequently he imported the 80-head Rotokawa cattle herd from New Zealand to bring this superior gene pool into the United States, and managed the herd for breeding stock. He has consulted all over the world and his work has been featured in Time Magazine. Currently he is developing an operations model for large-scale production of 100% grass-fed-and-finished beef in the Northeast. Food Lunch will be served from 12:30 to 1:30pm and is prepared from scratch by the Heifer Farm using organic ingredients produced on site. The cost of lunch is included with the registration cost. Refund Policy Refunds are given up until 10 days prior to the event minus a 15% processing fee. No refunds are provided within 10 days of event. Walk-in and online registration subject to additional fees.
