While The Dairy Show is usually focused on Dairy for obvious reasons, about a year ago I decided to expand the scope of the site to include more areas of agriculture. At that time I started working on a report about grass-fed beef. While I wanted it to follow the same basic format as the typical episode of The Dairy Show, I also wanted to expand it to include some information about public health and public policy issues. The result is a 40 minute news magazine style report following the production of grass fed beef from the pastures of Grazin' Angus Acres to the plates of restaurant Local 111. Along the way we talk about the science behind the ability for ruminants to eat grass, the history of beef in America with Betty Fussell, Climate Change with Author Anna Lappe, Animal Welfare with AWA program director Andrew Gunther, and nutrition with expert Professor Marion Nestle.
As this point the video is just about finished, you can get a sneak preview in the trailer above.
