When 17 busloads of beef producers embarked on the Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Summer Tour and Trade Show in Windom, MN on July 15, BEEF magazine was there. Now you can get a front-row seat of the tour highlights via five video profiles available at www.beefmagazine.com.

Sponsored by the Minnesota Cottonwood Cattle Producers, participants toured four cow-calf operations and three feedlots. Travelers witnessed prime examples of operations feeding naturally raised cattle, improving genetics, finding a niche market through boxed-beef sales, and even monitoring nutritional intake of livestock by adding electrolytes to the water.

BEEF intern Amanda Nolz also interviewed five producers for their feedback on the practices they witnessed on the tour, as well as their thoughts on the state of the beef industry. The videos from the event can be found on BEEF TV at beefmagazine.com/beeftv/.
