Behind the Scences of a Colorado Beef Feedlot

Today I took the time to read an article that has been circling around the Ag community online.  It's worth sharing, that is for sure!  It features a vegan, Registered Dietitian, Ryan Andrews, who was allowed to visit a 22,000 head beef feedlot in Colorado.  I'll admit that I expected this article to spread further untruths about animal agriculture, but I was pleasantly surprised by this man's ability to be open minded during his visit and to make some astute observations.  Even though he walked away still not interested in eating meat, he did walk away with a new perspective about beef and animal agriculture.  So please take the time to check it out.

  1. Thanks for posting the article. We dairy in SW MN and used to have a small feedlot. Nice to know someone out there is smart enough to check facts!


I write this blog to share my passion for my cows and farming, please be respectful of that. I reserve the right to delete those comments which portray hate, call names, and are out right disrespectful. If you have an honest question, I will respond, to explain what we do on our farm, why we do it and how we do it. Please read with an open mind. My time to blog is short, as most of our days are spent caring for our beloved cows. Thank you!
