Regenerative Grazing: Marketplace Webinar Series
Are you an agricultural professional or technical service provider seeking answers for your farmer and landowner clients about raising livestock regeneratively for profit?
Join the Embarras Grazing Partnership for a 2 part series examining value chains and profitability potential of pasture-based livestock production!
Part 1: Value Chains
Thursday, April 19, 11:00AM – 12:30PM (CT)
In part 1, we will discuss value chains for pasture-based livestock. A value chain includes all of the steps and processes that take our livestock from pasture to plate. Hear from Assistant Director of the IU Food Institute, Jodee Smith, on the top ways for producers to develop or join a market based food system that best serves the community and where their business fits in. We’ll also get a grazier’s first-hand account from Joseph Fischer of Fischer Farms discussing their operation and how they have found their place in the value chain.
Part 2: Marketing and Profitability
Tuesday, April 21, 11:00AM – 12:30PM (CT)
In part 2, we’ll dig into the revenue potential of pasture-based livestock. Jim Munsch, certified organic beef grazing farmer, will discuss a variety of marketing strategies for selling direct to consumers as well as options for moving beyond the direct to consumer market. We’ll also talk about opportunities for diversifying your product offerings. We will again be joined by Joseph Fischer of Fischer Farms to discuss how they have made their grass-fed operation profitable and share some of the marketing strategies that have been successful.
