beef cattle improvement workshop, shondack landing, ny, sept. 18-19
Posted: August 30 2015
With Gearld Fry and Mike Scannell
Harrier Fields Farm
4116 County Route 21
Schodack Landing, NY
9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., September 18-19, 2015
This workshop focuses on improving cattle herds with quality and quantity of meat per acre of grass. Learn how to recognize cattle that will yield 70% meat to bone and to reproduce it in your whole herd. And learn to recognize the bull that can make this happen. Learn about the importance of soil fertility and methods of achieving it.
Gearld Fry has a lifetime of experience earning his living from cattle to share. He has learned from the masters and brings along an exceptional gift in cattle detail. The last 20 years he has consulted world-wide, inspiring farmers and ranchers to improve their herds genetically.
Mike Scannell and Joan Harris have worked closely with Gearld for the last thirteen years. With Gearld's guidance, we bought a small group of preindustrial phenotype females and bred them to Gearld's pick of the best of the bulls in the world. We look forward to sharing our journey in breed/herd improvement. If you don't understand improvement, degeneration is sure to follow.
The workshop runs from 9 to 4 each day, and lunch will be provided. Registration is $100.
