Steve Campbell has been around cattle in one capacity or another since the age of twelve. His epiphany moment came in 1999 while recovering from a ranching injury.
The resulting refocusing of his energies into learning about soil, plant, animal and human health since that time have led him to: some very old books; like minded thinkers and mentors; on-farm experiments with soil fertility; and numerous speakers, farm visits and conferences over the past sixteen years.
From the Weston A. Price philosophy for human health to Carey Reams and Maynard Murray, Jerry Brunetti, Dr. Richard Olree, Gearld Fry, Will Winter and the teachings of numerous authors of yesteryear; Steve has extrapolated those learned principles of nature into his own farmland and animals and to help others make similar improvements on their farms and with their families health. Along with numerous farm consulting invitations across the country, Steve has spoken at many events and has done many presentations in conjunction with Gearld Fry. tailormadecattle.com
THE TYPE OF COW WESTON A PRICE WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD OF
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23
We will go on a journey of discovery about how the "space race" in animals to fit the feedlot system (CAFOs) has given us females that cannot function on our low-mineral/high-toxin farms and ranches. In beef cattle specifically, the red solo cup-shaped cow that sheds early and has the butterfat indicators will be more fertile and cost less to run than the average cow in America. Part of the reason our cows are not functional is the lack of clean nutrients in utero, at mom's side and then going forward throughout their lives. As Weston Price found in the 1930s with humans, cows that consume adequate and CLEAN minerals are born healthy and stay healthy.
