December 1 and 2, Harrisburg, PA

The ultimate in healthy foods are dairy products made with milk from cows fed absolutely NO grain. Yes, it can be done! It pays incredibly well but it requires a different knowledge base than grain supplemented pastured dairy cows. Here are some reasons you should consider this new niche.

* How would you like to earn $10,000 a cow and have your winters off?

* How about over $1,000 for a pastured veal calf?

* Or $5,000 for a grassfed dairy steer?

These are real prices, that real farmers are getting in the Northeast today! You'll hear their personal stories at this conference.

Also, organic grain prices are currently very high and are predicted to go even higher. Feeding organic grain virtually erases any profit increase from Certified Organic's higher pay rate.

At this conference you will see how just a dozen or so dairy cows can make you a professional level income. By that we mean an income equal to a doctor or lawyer.

Most dairy producers refuse to believe, or even seek to hear the details of no grain dairy production, which is really good news for innovators like you as it means prices will stay high for a very long time.

Currently prices for 100% Grassfed Dairy Products are EXTREMELY high.

No-grain dairy production is the ultimate income producer for a small acreage farm.

And, the ultimate health food for consumers!

Subjects to be covered include:
* Legal Certified Ray Fluid Milk
* Farmstead Cheese, Butter, Cream and Yogurt Production
* Grass Fed Suckled Veal
* Dual-Purpose Dairy Cows
* Whey Fed Pork Production
* Once-A-Day Milking
* Seasonal Milking
* Organic Dairy Health
* ...and much, much more

Speakers include award winning 100% grass farmstead cheese makers Jonathan White and Trent Hendricks. Dual Purpose dairy/beef grassfed production will be presented by Vermont grazier, Douglas Flack.

The unique health aspects of 100% grass milk will be covered by Sally Fallon of the Weston A. Price Foundation and Dr. Tilak Dhiman of Utah State University.

Organic dairy cow health will be covered by Dr. William Winter of Minneapolis and the secrets of producing high brix (energy) cool-season pastures by Doug Gunnink of Minnesota.

SGF editor, Allan Nation, will review all the facts we used to know about producing milk fat from grass but have forgotten.

There will also be an evening discussion of easy-to-produce ancillary products that every grass dairyman should consider.

This is your chance to get in on the ground floor of something new that is going to be big!

We have negotiated a discounted hotel rate of $89 at the Harrisburg East Holiday Inn where the conference will be held. Call the hotel direct at 717-939-7841 before October 31.

8:00 am – 8:30 am Registration

8:30 am – 10:00 am The Secrets of Seasonal Milk Production Allan will reveal the secrets of keeping cows seasonal using 1960 New Zealand research and advice. Even the New Zealanders have forgotten many of these!

10:30 am – 12:00 pm Small Acreages Earn Big Returns from No-Grain Dairying Trent Hendricks Telford, Pennsylvania dairyman, Trent Hendricks, produces award winning cheese from both cows and goats, sells legal certified raw milk, grassfed beef, whey fed pork and pastured poultry. He will show you how a dairy-centered farm of less than 40 acres can produce a professional level of income.

1:30 pm - 3:00 pm Award Winning Cheese Starts with 100% Grassfed Milk-Jonathan White Jonathan White’s artisan cheeses are the darlings of New York City gourmands. However, he said 100% grassfed milk is essential for a standout cheese. He will show you that with a return of $10,000 a cow, you don’t need very many of them. By the way, he sells suckled veal calves for $1800 a piece and grassfed dairy steers for $5000 in the Big Apple. Living in the Northeast has definite advantages for the aware grazier.

3:30 pm – 5:00 pm Dual Purpose Dairy Cattle by Doug Flack The quality of grass required for no-grain dairying and grass-finished beef is exactly the same. Dual-purpose breeds allow you to produce high butterfat milk and excellent, tender beef from the male calves. This is an old idea that dairymen need to discover in these days of premium-priced grassfed beef. Vermont grazier, Doug Flack, has been doing this successfully for many years.

8:00 pm- 9:30 pm A panel on Ancillary Products for Grass Based Dairies Whey and buttermilk fed pork and poultry, lactofermented vegetables and wood fired bakery products are just a few of the ancillary products our panelists produce and will discuss. We’ll show you lots of holons that will compliment a dairy centerpiece.


8:30 am– 10:00 am The unique Properties of 100 % Grassfed Milk by Sally Fallon Raw milk from 100% grassfed cows is REAL MILK. It has unique properties that naturally protect it from pathogens and bacteria. Natural food activist, Sally Fallon, will detail the largely overlooked benefits of dairy products from milk from no-grain cows.

10:30 am – 12:00 pm The Ultimate Health Food by Tilak Dhiman Tilak Dhiman is America’s premier researcher into CLA and its anti-carcinogen effects. In this talk Dhiman will show that there is probably no more effective way of preventing cancer than consuming dairy products from no-grain dairy cows.

1:30 pm – 3:00 pm How to Increase the Energy Content of Your Grass by Doug Gunnink Minnesota grazier, Doug Gunnink, has been setting the Midwest on its ear with how he naturally increases the sugar (carbohydrate) content of cool season grasses through carefully balanced mineral fertilization. This has major implications for every one wanting to stop feeding grain to dairy or beef cattle.

3:15 pm – 5:00 pm Organic Animal Health by William Winter Organic milk can earn you twice the pay for no more work. And, it is particularly rewarding if you stop feeding high priced organic grain. Dr. William Winter is an organic-oriented veterinarian in Minnesota. In this talk he will go through most of the possible health maladies including flies and internal parasites of dairy cattle and how to deal with these organically.
