Raising 100% Grass-Fed Beef
This workshop presents the benefits for the bovine, the human, the land, and the world of raising beef on a 100% grass diet. Participants will gain appreciation for details of producing consistently high-quality beef. Topics include genetics, management, grass, harvest, and handling. The morning features a lecture with photos. The afternoon features hands-on demonstration (bring your boots). (This workshop is co-sponsored by East Quabbin Land Trust.)
Instructor: Ridge Shinn is a pioneer in the modern grass-farming movement. Ridge’s core expertise is in evaluating live cattle for performance on a grass only diet; picking cattle, breeding cattle, and raising cattle for the 100% grass-fed market.
