Title: Salad bar beef
Author: Joel Salatin
Published: Swoope, VA : Polyface Inc. , c1995

Summary: This book describes a small-scale beef operation in which the cattle move from paddock to paddock grazing on a variety of grasses and forage greens in well managed pastures. They are not fattened on grains. Ideally the beef should be processed and marketed locally. The author believes this model will provide an alternative to large, captial intensive and environmentally unsound feedlot operations and enable small-scale beef producers to make a reasonable living.
