Grassfed beef is gaining popularity within the beef industry, and a workshop has been planned to address the topic. The workshop, hosted by Texas A&M’s department of animal science and the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, will be held June 8-9 on the Texas A&M University campus in College Station.
Programming includes seminars on grassfed beef systems, carcass demonstrations and a producer panel discussion. Events will be held at the Rosenthal Meat Science Building and the Louis Pearce Pavilion.
“In addition to conventionally produced beef, products from natural, grass-fed and organic production systems are important contributors to the beef market. We welcome both the beef producer and interested consumers to attend this conference and learn more about this segment of the industry,” said Dr. Rick Machen, AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist. “There will be several topics of interest to both audiences.”
Registration is $250 by May 27, and may be completed online at http://agrilifeevents.tamu.edu, under the keyword “grassfed.”
