The Crow Wing River Basin Forage Council invites you to a day with Steve Campbell of Tailor Made Cattle. He will share details on cattle selection for a grazing environment, longevity, minerals and toxicity management. He will also help with solutions to your Genetic and Epigenetic challenges and will be evaluating live cattle to discuss genetics favorable to grass based production.

Steve comes to us from Western Idaho. He has been around cattle in one capacity or another since the age of ten. 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 and conferences over the past twenty-four years. From the Weston A. Price and Carey Reams philosophies for human health to 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 onto his own ranch-land and animals and to help others make similar improvements on their ranches and with their families health.
