The CRFS Livestock Work Group hosted a webinar with Grass Run Farms, a collaboration of family-run farms in the Upper Midwest producing and marketing grass-fed beef. Kristine Jepsen, of Grass Run Farms, provided background on and an overview of current operations at the collaborative. The presentation outlined the challenges any group of producers will need to overcome: consistency of finished product, workable production protocol, and year-round supply logistics.
