What makes a good grass-fed cow?

Join PASA for a presentation and conversation with organic, grass-fed dairy farmer Ron Holter, of Frederick County, Maryland, as he attempts to answer this question. Ron will present on his multi-generational grazing dairy farm in Maryland, including his work developing grass-fed genetics for his herd and others. Ron has been grazing cows since 1995 and certified organic since 2005. He began line-breeding in his herd in 2006, and developed his first bull for marketing grass-fed genetics the same year he transitioned to 100% grass on the farm, in 2007. The webinar will end with a conversation and attendee questions.

This webinar is being offered free of charge through support from a USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Grant.

Speaker Information

Ron Holter is a fifth-generation dairy farmer in Frederick County, Maryland. Ron transitioned his family’s dairy to organic 20 years ago, and now manages a 100 percent grass-fed herd. He also breeds and sells grass-fed genetics from his own herd. Ron’s son, Adam, works alongside his father and is in-line to be the sixth-generation owner/operator of the family farm.
