In this episode of the Regenerative Journey, we’re joined by Will Mewburn, a herd manager with Highland Beef. We discuss the importance of selecting the right cattle for the job, focusing on breed and early maturation to mitigate risks and achieve efficient growth. Will shares his experiences working closely with cattle and the need for transparency and collaboration between producers and herd managers. As market conditions fluctuate and the industry faces challenges, we explore strategies for farmers to navigate these uncertain times and safeguard their businesses.
This season we’ve teamed up with Highland Beef Pastoral a grass-fed beef supply chain servicing the growing US grass-fed market.
The Highland Beef program uses an innovative model looking to change the way farmers and customers interact.
Essentially this Australian-owned business place cattle on their member graziers’ properties at their expense and provides farmers competitive returns for every kg of beef produced, allowing their graziers to focus on improving their businesses in a capital-free, risk-free environment.
