A scientist visited our farm this week.

Dr. Stephan van Vliet took samples of our pasture’s soil and grass. When we butcher our steers, he will take samples of the meat and organs and test for the nutrient content of the beef. He will compare the beef and what it ate it with other beef and what it ate to find out how the animal’s diet affects the nutrients in the meat.

This isn’t the first research work he’s done on meat.
