Positive Outlook for Cattle Industry

December 8, 2011
By: Sara Schafer, Farm Journal Media Business and Crops Editor

Kristi White, of New Gloucester, Maine, is excited for 2012. She’s part of Pineland Farms Natural Meats, a company that has feedlots in northern Maine and northern New York. 

White says Pineland Farms Natural Meats is a 100% naturally finished feedlot. They use no antibiotics, growth hormones or animal byproducts on their cattle, from birth to harvest. Whole Foods is their major customer.
“We were somewhat nervous that natural meats would be a niche market, but it seems like it is here to stay,” she says.  
Trying to control input costs and manage risks are some of the top goals for White’s operation.
Farm Journal Media’s Pam Fretwell visits with White:

White attended Top Producer’s Executive Women in Agriculture conference last week in Chicago, Ill.
