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.
This event begins with Gearld leading a beef genetics discussion at the Wadena County Courthouse. Next, the group will caravan to the Midd-Minn Dairy, 17784 Country Road 7, Verndale, 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 starts 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.
