My cousin Will Campbell has been raising cattle his whole life. In this podcast, we talk about the process of raising cattle, cattle genetics, beef markets, and transitioning a farm into a more holistic model where beef and chicken is sold straight to the consumer.
If you really want to get to know your farmer, look no further than this podcast.
