SFA Cattle Breeding Field Day with Gearld Fry

As part of our ongoing Keep Cattle in Minnesota project and GrazeFest series of grass-based livestock events, SFA is proud to announce this farmer networking and educational event with cattle-breeding expert Gearld Fry.
The event will begin with Gearld leading a beef genetics discussion at the West Central Research and Outreach Center in Morris. Next, the group will caravan to the Mark Erickson farm, where Gearld will lead a hands-on session on how to pick breeding stock for grassed beef.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the event at 9. 
Fry (right) has decades of experience around the world in selecting and breeding cattle that will perform on a 100 percent forage diet. He is the founder of Bovine Engineering & Consulting and the American Herbataurus Society, and his wisdom and understanding in the field is greatly valued.
