Join the Embarras Grazing Partnership for a two-part series examining value chains and the profitability potential of pasture-based livestock production!
Part 1: Value Chains | Tuesday, April 19 | 11 AM – 12:30 PM CT
In Part 1, we will discuss value chains for pasture-based livestock. Jodee Smith, Assistant Director of the IU Food Institute, will share the top ways producers can develop or join a market-based food system. We’ll also get a first-hand account from grazier Joseph Fischer of Fischer Farms. Joseph will discuss their operation and how they have found their place in the value chain.
Part 2: Marketing & Profitability | Thursday, April 21 | 11 AM – 12:30 PM CT
In Part 2, we’ll dig into the revenue potential of pasture-based livestock. Jim Munsch, certified organic grass-fed beef farmer, will discuss a variety of marketing strategies for selling direct-to-consumer as well as options for moving beyond the direct-to-consumer market. We’ll again be joined by Joseph Fischer of Fischer Farms, who will share marketing strategies and discuss how they grew the profitability of their operation.
Cost for this training is $25 per session, or $40 for both sessions.
