Grazier's Production School: A Seminar with Anibal Pordomingo & Allan Nation

This school was designed for graziers who want to compete based upon exceptional flavor and tenderness.  

The two and one half day SGF School has been professionally video taped.  

"Gourmet Grassfed" is frequently used in grassfed advertising but few of us can live up to the promise. In this seminar, Anibal and Allan give you the knowledge of how to produce such a product. It then will require a lot of patience and practice on your part to be able to consistently do it. Gourmet grassfed beef can be done, and Allan and Anibal discuss how.

If you are considering: grass finishing, hayless wintering, or changing calving seasons.....
