There was definitely no shortage of information at the Sustainable Ag Conference. Now that we’re home we have to start applying it.
Kelly and I were fortunate to get to have breakfast this morning with an excellent grazier from Missouri, Greg Judy. We came away with some great information that will help us to produce some of the best beef possible with the most efficient methods possible. Thanks Mr. Judy.
We got an amazing amount of information from Greg Judy and others on this first day of the Sustainable Agriculture Conference in Greenville, SC.
We toured Greenbriar Farms in Easley, SC with Mr. Judy in between two learning sessions and a wonderful lunch.
As if grass-fed beef wasn’t already “outside-the-box” we were exposed to some different grazing methods that could cut costs while maintaining the quality of our beef. So in the future we will be looking at how to implement mob grazing instead of just rotational grazing which can have major impacts on the quality of grass available to the cattle.
What won’t change is the quality of our products. We are committed to providing our customers with the best tasting and lowest cost pastured meats available.
Below is the setting for the keynote speech this evening as we were getting settled in for a great presentation by Mark Shepard. We are definitely looking forward to an even more informative day tomorrow.
Kelly and I are planning to attend the Sustainable Ag Conference put on by the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association. We’ve been wanting to attend for several years now, and it looks like its finally going to work out.
On Monday we will be attending a seminar led by Greg Judy who is a big name in mob grazing. On Tuesday and Wednesday we will be attending the various workshops and seminars.
I hope to update regularly throughout the Conference here on our blog so keep an eye out for some great information and interesting links.
By the way, we’re leaving the farm in good hands with my dad, Gary, and our wonderful employee, Travis. They do a great job keeping things running when we have to be gone.
