US Beef Ambassadors tour 28sept2012

Yolo Land & Cattle Co.

Tour of our Black Angus Cattle Ranch

Black Angus bulls
Most of our cows were away on summer pasture, but the bulls were here grazing their home turf.

The US Beef Ambassadors tour group was comprised of student competitors from across the US, their parents, and beef industry representatives. Every year at a different state in the US, the American National Cattlewomen, and the National Beef Checkoff program sponsor a competition for students aged 17 to 20 years to earn a spot on the National Beef Ambassador Program. The five winners who are selected will receive scholarships and will tour the US promoting the beef industry. This year, the competition was held in Sacramento, California. We were honored to be chosen as a tour location for these distinguished youngsters.

We ride horses to manage the cattle on the hilly parts of the ranch.

visitors exiting their bus

While we enjoy hosting many types of visitors on the ranch, we particularly like beef industry groups, especially youth groups. Their enthusiasm and energy is contagious. With so much negative press about animal agriculture these days, it gives us hope that there will be a future generation willing to pursue careers in this challenging field. We also enjoy exchanging ideas with producers from other states. It's amazing how much we all have in common when it comes to ranching.

Grassfed Beef Hamburger Barbecue

Many of our national visitors come from traditional grain-fed cattle operations, so the grass-fed, grass-finished beef that we produce may not be something they're accustomed to. We explained how we decided to pursue this grassfed beef market, and then we gave them a taste of our grassfed beef barbecued to perfection. Our goal was not to convert them, but to demonstrate that there are other alternatives out there for consumers. At the very least, they all seemed to enjoy the meal, and no one left our ranch feeling hungry!!
