Regen Ag Club Visits NGF
October 29th we hosted student members of MS State Regen Ag Club here on the farm.
The club was started by Chris Williams, the son of Dr. Allen Williams who you have heard me talk about many times before.
This is the club's first year - so everything is still very new!
Nine students attended the field day here. Each person shared their interest and expected future in agriculture. I was surprised how many of them were attending State, but were not residents of Mississippi. One student's home was Idaho.
First, we looked at our pastured chicken operation and explained what we do and the advantages of raising broilers on pasture.
Next, we looked at the cows while they were up close and before the rain started. Most of the students had experience around cows and the guy who is studying Ranch Management was complimentary of our herd. Overall, they asked a lot of good questions about our handling of the cows, cover crops, etc.
Visually, the pasture does not appear to have much nutritive value. However, when you inspect the cows manure patty it suggests the cow is receiving all she needs nutritively. Additionally, Dr. Williams commented how our cows have "happy lines". Happy lines are an indication that the cow's system is healthy and her glands, organs, etc. are all functionally normally.
Soon the rain started so we moved into the plant where I was able to show them both the chicken processing plant and red meat plant.
Again, lots of good questions including marketing, sales, USDA, etc. But no takers when I asked if anyone would like to process a chicken. hahaha
Beth then treated us to a farm raised lunch of smoked chicken, baked beans, and potato salad.
It's always a great day to share our farm story - especially to a group of young folks interested in regenerative agriculture for a career.
