Grassfed beef focus of conference

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service announced the fourth conference focused on grassfed beef production.

Consumer interest in natural, grassfed and organic beef is on the rise. If you’d like to learn more about grassfed beef production and how it’s different, mark your calendar for May 29 to 30 to be in College Station for this year’s Grassfed Beef Conference.

The organizers are excited about the interest among participants and the outstanding lineup of speakers that will come together for this information-sharing opportunity. As the area (hopefully) emerges from the drought, now is the time to re-evaluate forage and beef production systems.

Here’s a quick preview of the agenda:

Overview of the U.S. beef industry;

Defining natural, grassfed and organic;

Fundamentals of growing forage;

Cattle types suited for grassfed beef;

Forage-based nutrition for cattle;

Preventive herd health;

Handling cattle for wholesome beef;

Carcass fabrication demonstration;

Consumers and their expectations;

A taste of Texas beef;

Marketing a unique product; and


The event is hosted by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Animal Science.
