Organic Beef

Organic Beef…It’s a Growing Market

Ranchers around the country are capitalizing on the trend by going organic.
When cattlemen meet the strict rules of USDA’s Organic Marketing Program, they can use the government’s “Certified Organic” logo and provide assurances to demanding consumers. In some cases, cattle producers are pursuing it as a local enterprise, marketing the beef to nearby restaurants and grocery stores. Lane Mc- Connell, who manages organic promotion programs for the Missouri Department of Agriculture, says, “Consumers are wanting those local products, and wanting these types of niche products; they’re searching those out, and there’s a lot of different places now for farmers to sell products like this.”
