We attended the 2014 Grassfed Exchange conference in Columbia, MO Wednesday through Friday. What an excellent line-up of farm tours on Wednesday and speakers on Thursday and Friday! Here’s some photos from the farm tours.

Greg Judy telling the crowd what we would see at his farm tour.

Jan Judy told us about their sheep operation.

One of the Judy Farm interns described his hog project.

Then we walked out in the field to listen to Greg talk about how he grazes his cow herd.

Excellent grass-finished genetics building meat.

Doug Peterson demonstrated the water filtration in various types of soils.

Luke Linnenbringer describing his farming operation to half of the group.

Luke’s chicken tractor.

Luke had built a trailer with a weight scale and electronic tag reader to record weights (front legs only).
