Conference to Focus on Options for Grass-Fed Beef Cattle
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/26/2012

Successful options for profiting from grass-fed beef production is the focus of Land Stewardship Project workshop being held next month in La Crosse. The event is scheduled for February 11 at the People's Food Co-op from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Organizers say the focus of the program will be to develop a profitable grass-fed beef enterprise. Jim Munsch, a grass-fed beef producer, financial consultant and Wisconsin coordinator of a multi-state grass-fed beef research project, will provide an in-depth analysis of what it takes to make a grass-fed beef enterprise work.

"Despite continued corporate concentration in the livestock industry, there are good options for farmers to profit from livestock," said LSP organizer Richard Ness. "The workshops will offer something for all types of producers: established farmers, beginning farmers, farmers with livestock, farmers thinking about."

At the end of each workshop, LSP will lead a brief discussion to identify next steps needed to help more farmers start new livestock enterprises, expand current ones or transition to more profitableoptions, while gaining access to farmer-friendly production and marketing chains.

The workshop cost is $20 per LSP member or $30 per non-member to cover lunch and other materials. To reserve a meal, pre-registration is required by calling LSP's Lewiston, Minnesota office at 507-523-3366.
