Beef: Ranch to Feedlot to Packing House

This event was recorded as part of the Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance Third Annual Symposium “Beef: From Plains to Plate”.

Central Region State Beef Councils presents a panel of beef producers speaking on the evolution of beef production in the Midwest. Dave Hamilton of Thedford, Nebraska speaks on Cow-Calf production, raising calves to maturity before finishing at feedlots. President-elect of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Steve Foglesong, speaks on Feedlots. Dr. Ben Wileman from the Beef Cattle Institute of Kansas State University presents on modern Animal Husbandry Practices.

Celebrate Midwestern beef foodways by tracing the historic odyssey of all-American meat from the windswept plains of the heartland to meat processors in “cities on the make,” like Chicago, where it was packed, wrapped and sent to dinner plates around the globe. Join the Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance (GMFA) on that journey Beef: From Plains to the Plate – Follow the Cattlemen’s Trail to Savory Midwest Beef Traditions.
