Webinar #4 - Beef Supply Chain and Market Disruptions
2020 has shaken up the beef industry across the nation from global trade to national processing and local beef sales at the farm gate. The UC ANR Food Systems Resiliency Webinar on August 25 from 10 to 11 will feature 4 speakers for a deeper look at beef production direct sales and ranch to table operations. Speakers and topics include:

  • Dr. Tina Saitone, Associate Cooperative Extension Specialist, Agricultural and Resource Economics will discuss beef national markets, supply chain disruptions and consumer demand.
  • Lori and Kirby Swickard with 5 Dot Ranch with cattle grazing in Northern California, along with a butcher shop and restaurant in Napa will discuss ranching during COVID-19, with a special focus on vertical integrated operation.
  • Morgan Doran, UC Cooperative Extension Livestock and Natural Resources Advisor will provide up-to-date information on the regulatory challenges with direct farm sales.
