Ag Marketing Upcoming Programs
Colorado State University Extension’s Meat School begins on October 30, 2019. This 6-week course is designed to expose producers to the skills and resources required to produce high quality meat, develop long-term successful relationships with processors, and access new markets for improved profitability.
We are offering the Meat School in Routt County at the Extension Office in Steamboat Springs, Alamosa at the San Luis Valley Local Food Coalition office, and at the La Plata County Fairgrounds in Durango. Each regional class will be guided by a facilitator, and participants will be able to attend the course in person or participate on line. Each evening’s session will last for 2 hours, including time for questions, and be taught by 2 experts in livestock production, processing, and/or meat marketing for direct markets. Classes will take place on Wednesdays from 6pm-8pm on October 30, November 6, November 13, November 20, December 4 and December 11.
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.
