COLLEGE STATION -- With consumer interest heightening about where food comes from, grass-fed beef producers will have the opportunity to learn more about marketing opportunities as well as production trends during a Thursday and Friday, May 30-31, conference in College Station. The conference will be held at the Rosenthal Meat Science Building on the Texas A&M University campus.

“One of the highlights will be Dr. John Andrae, Extension forage specialist from Clemson (University),” said Dr. Rick Machen, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service beef cattle specialist in Uvalde. “Among U.S. grass-fed livestock producers, John is well-recognized for his ‘sustainable systems’ approach to forage production and grazing management. Given the ongoing drought across much of the South Central United States, sustainable forage production is atop everyone’s items-of-interest list.”

The conference will cover a broad range of topics pertaining to grass-fed beef production and is open to both beef producers and consumers.

The following topics will be discussed: overview of the beef industry; defining natural, grass-fed, and organic beef; growing forage -- the fundamentals; cattle types suited for grass-fed beef; forage-based nutrition for cattle; preventive herd health; handling cattle for wholesome beef; carcass fabrication; consumers and their expectations; marketing a unique product; and economics and sustainability.

A live carcass fabrication demonstration will be featured the second day.

Cost is $250 through Wednesday, May 15, and $300 after. Three continuing education credits will be offered to Texas Department of Agriculture pesticide applicators license holders.
