The first book of its kind, Grass-Fed Cattle: How to Produce and Market Natural Beef is an indispensable, authoritative reference for anyone interested in raising cattle or looking for a profitable farm venture. 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 everything a farmer needs to know, regardless of herd size and acreage, about how to raise, manage, and market grass-fed cattle. His advice and systems are applicable to the smallest backyard hobby farms as well as the largest commercial herds and ranches.

This is a very comprehensive reference. We have loaned it to some young people that we are trying to help mentor.
We read this book many years ago, but also many years after beginning our grass-finished beef operation in 1989. Had we had such a reference in those early days, it would have saved us much trial and error work in developing our pastures for forage-finished beef and seedstock.
