In a recent Beef Magazine article, it was noted that grassfed beef sales now total 7% of total beef sales which was only $5 million in sales in 1998 and is now $2.5 billion in 2013—a 25-30% growth in the industry. Allen William was quoted as saying he thought that the grassfed beef industry would capture 30% of the beef industry in 10 years.
Todd Churchill, former owner of Thousand Hills Cattle Company, suggested that people interested in succeeding in the grassfed beef industry should take a Holistic Management class to better understand how to graze livestock in way that is sustainable.
