For the last 4 years, Wernette has participated in an international study with researchers from Michigan State University that is measuring how various cattle farming practices impact the environment, specifically related to climate change. Their research suggests that grazing cattle among multiple paddocks can contribute to climate change mitigation through the sequestration of carbon in the soil. This study challenges existing conclusions that only feedlot-intensification reduces the overall beef greenhouse gas footprint through greater productivity.
At this event, we will host a panel discussion with members from the MSU research team and farmers from Wernette Beef. They will share more about their research and how you can apply what they have learned to your food-purchasing decisions. The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are required as there is limited space. After the panel discussion there will be a 3-course dinner with beer pairings highlighting Wernette Beef in each course. Tickets are limited for this special dining experience.
Saison, say what?
