"Bison, Prairies and Climate Change"

Last month, Dan was an honored speaker at the 19th Annual Edward & Nancy Dodge Lecture presented by John Hopkins Center for a Livable Future. During his time there, they sat down with Dan for a Q&A, which was recently released online.

We wanted to take this opportunity to share that conversation with you, so we’ve provided a transcript of Dan’s interview where he discussed, "Bison, Prairies and Climate Change".

CAFOs vs. Grass-Fed/Finished

Do you ever feel that your efforts are moving in a “one step forward – two steps back” rhythm? Recently, a few articles landed on our desks. Articles written about CAFOs and industrialized agriculture and articles written on the benefits of grass-fed animals. No one article covers it all and it is the ALL that is important to know.   

To offer you a briefing of what they are about, we combed through them and pulled out the low-lights and highlights. Although the stories were written by both journalists and scientists, and were mostly unbiased, we openly admit that we are biased.

My Early Christmas "Present"

It’s dark and the snow and wind have been blowing for hours. Many of the windows are covered with snow, creating a tomb like ambience. But, I am safe and warm. I had fallen asleep reading while it was still light out and during that time, the fireplace had shut down. It felt eerie waking in the pitch blackness.

Ghosts of the Great Plains

Dear Friends,
 
This past summer, our main wholesale partner, Natural Grocers, sent a film crew out to the ranch to capture our process. They spent a week with us, documenting our daily lives and telling our story.
 
The end result is a film appropriately titled “Ghosts of the Great Plains.” It captures not only our collective environmental responsibility but also our shared history and the social responsibility we all bear.

A Dose of Nutritional Facts

What to eat and what is in our food can be difficult to know. False claims and the misuse of labeling doesn’t help. We always want to be transparent with our customers and recently had our Ground Buffalo retested to offer you solid nutritional data.

Too Much on Our Plates

Is it our 21st Century lives or is it human nature that makes us pile too much on our plates, especially over the holidays? Or maybe it is me?

All my life I have felt like I’m running about a week behind. Sometimes, I fall many weeks behind and the weight of it slows me to the point that the eternal funk that has been chasing me since childhood threatens to catch up. I fantasize that it has something to do with being a Midwesterner, with my desire to please, and with my inability to say no.
