2014 Women Working in the Meat Business

Women Working in the Meat Business Intensive Seminar
Sunday, Nov.9th – Tuesday, Nov.11th
Chapel Hill, NC

Join 30 women livestock farmers, butchers, processors, chefs, and professionals at the Chapel HillTop Lodge and Lantern Table for two days and nights of a packed meat business curriculum including hands-on learning, observation, discussion, and networking with lead instructor and James Beard Award nominee Kari Underly, a third generation meat cutter and inventor of the flat iron steak.

Participants will receive training in whole pork and beef butchery and leave with increased confidence in determining yields, making cut sheet decisions, and marketing your meat to wholesale and retail customers. Expect energized discussions and an opportunity to experiment with industry tools that help tackle the challenges and opportunities within the niche meat sector.

PLUS for the first time ever, NC Choices is teaming up with Amazing Grazing’s Leadership in Cattle Handling for Female Producers workshop, November 8th at the NCSU Butner Beef Cattle Field Laboratory.   It will be a packed educational weekend for women meat producers and professionals!
