“This book walks the reader through every phase of grass-fed beef production, often detailing aspects found wanting in textbooks on the subject. Its lessons are international and conquer the environmental differences under which grass is grown and fed. Outstanding!” – Charles Walters, Executive Editor of Acres, USA
