Event description

Description

For producers of beef, bison, lamb, pork, goat and other meats!

Colorado State University Extension is offering its first ever Meat School, designed to expose producers to the skills and resources required to produce high quality meat, develop long-term successful relationships with processors, and identify and access new markets for improved farm profitability.

This October - December 2019 we are offering the Meat School in Routt County, the San Luis Valley and La Plata County. The presenters each evening are online but each regional class is guided by a facilitator, and participants will be able to attend the course in person (for community building and networking) or participate online. Each evening’s session will last for 2 hours, from 6 pm to 8 pm, and will be taught by experts in livestock production, processing, and/or meat marketing for direct markets. Note that we will be covering ruminants and swine, but not poultry. See the class schedule here.

Register for a 6-week class in your area! Cost is $120 for all 6 sessions ($160 for 2 registrants from the same business), and includes a book (The New Livestock Farmer by Rebecca Thistlethwaite and Jim Dunlop), resources, access to recordings of all presentations, and evening snacks. Classes will take place on October 30, November 6, November 13, November 20, December 4 and December 11.
