Grass-Fed Cattle: How to Produce and Market Natural Beef is a comprehensive book covering every aspect of raising and care of grass-fed cattle, including herd selection, breeding, yearly cycles, cultivating and maintaining healthy soil and grass, fencing and pasture rotation, winter grazing, pests and diseases, and necessary equipment.

Author Julius Ruechel, who has been raising beef cattle on his family's farm since his start as a 4-H member, packs this handbook with the information every farmer needs to know, regardless of herd size and acreage.

In addition to essential farming information, a major section of the book is devoted to marketing. He discusses niche marketing opportunities, scheduling the selling and buying of cattle for the greatest profit, finishing the beef and arranging for slaughter, labeling, dynamic marketing, and financial planning and recordkeeping. He also includes chapters specially addressed to the conventional farmer who is transitioning to natural production, the farmer who is considering leasing or buying the land, and the farmer who wiches to pursue organic certification.
