The event will be held on October 9th from 1 pm to 8 pm. Prior to the on-farm portion of the event, please join us at the historic Michigan Theatre in Jackson, Michigan, for a special showing of Sacred Cow, The Nutritional, Environmental and Ethical Case for Better Meat. “The movie Sacred Cow probes the fundamental moral, environmental and nutritional quandaries we face in raising and eating animals. In this project, we focus our lens on the largest and perhaps most maligned of farmed animals, the cow.” Guest speaker Diane Rodgers is the director and producer of the film, an internationally recognized author and a “real food” Licensed Registered Dietitian Nutritionist living on a working organic farm in New England. She speaks at universities and conferences around the world about nutrition and sustainability, social justice, animal welfare, and food policy issues. She makes the case that beef is an extremely valuable and healthy part of our diet. Then visit McLaughlin Farm LTD for a pasture walk with presentations and demonstrations by Dr. Jerry Lindquist—MSUE (retired), John McLaughlin—McLaughlin Farm LTD, and Jeremiah Swain—MAEAP and Jackson County Conservation District.
