Producing and Marketing Beef: A workshop at the Vermont Winter Grazing Conference Jan 15 & 16, 2016

Comparing Different Ways to Produce and Market Your Beef

Are you a beef producer wondering whether you would make more money as a feeder, cow/calf, or grass-finished beef operation?  Would you aim at wholesale, direct, or institutional markets? Business planning specialists Rose Wilson and Sarah Flack will highlight production-side expenses such as feed, labor and infrastructure, and market channel income potential, such as how different marketing methods impact sale margins.  They will help walk through assessing net return on investment and quality of life impacts to help you figure out what’s a good fit for you.
