Wes will discuss the importance of grassland ecosystems, the benefits of grass fed beef to animal health, environmental health and human health.  Also, he will speak on why current conventional confinement of animal agriculture isn't sustainable.  Wes will give some info on the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA) and the Council for Healthy Food Systems.  

Here is some info about their Blackland Prairie operation:

WES and KELLY ADAMS have been farming and ranching with best biological methods since they began Adams Blackland Prairie Farm in 1986. They have grown legume seeds, grass seeds and grains as well as native seeds for many years supporting the local need for regional ecotype cover crop seed and forage seed. They specialized in their own brand of grass-fed beef that has been sold directly to customers and to the Whole Foods Market when they were members of the Grassfed Livestock Alliance. Wes and Kelly have held a Conservation Security Program contract from the Natural Resource and Conservation Service for the past 15 years, requiring that the farm has no erosion. They created a Holistic Resource Management goal in 2002. Adams Blackland Prairie Farm has been certified organic since 2009 by Nature’s International Certification Services. Their motto is Healthy Soil = Healthy Plants and Animals = Healthy People. Wes currently serves as the Council’s President of the Board.
