Pasture to Plate is a webinar series taking an in-depth look at the cattle and beef markets and the factors that impact those markets. Our goal is to effectively influence policy proposals that affect the agriculture industry. Additionally, we aim to provide information and insight for producers when marketing their cattle, giving them a better understanding of the entire food supply chain. This series is free of charge and open to anyone!
Please note that the schedule is subject to change. Keep checking back for new updates!
