We have had a traveling band of sheep visit us this week. There are about 1500 using up our last bit of pasture before the winter. The cattle can’t utilize this last bit of low growing feed. Question? Why can’t we find american lamb in our grocery stores?
Last week I spent a couple days in Denver with a bunch of “cowboys” learning from each other about better ways to add enough value to our beef products that people will beat down our door to buy from us. Well, I’m sure I didn’t get all the answers. But, I believe I got some things that will propel us forward and help us serve you better. The guy who brought everyone together was Allan Nation, owner and editor of “The Stockman Grass Farmer”. Much of what I know about grass finished cattle can be attributed to his excellent authorship and editorializing of this publication.
