We are also involved with these issues and are still in the early
stages. We have identified inspection and labeling requirements and have
begun to develop some possible marketing strategies. As for finishing on
grass, we have some farmers already doing that. We have anecdotal
information that consumers like grass finished beef (per these few farmers),
but have not determined widespread acceptance by consumers.
Most of our beef production is in Southern Indiana, so perhaps we
could look to future collaboration on this effort.
