Building a Beef Business – Lessons Learned

Meg is an accomplished speaker and is available to present at your conference or workshop. To learn more, click on “Find a Speaker” in the menu bar.

Meg Grzeskiewicz has always wanted to be a rancher. But getting there without a family farm to start from means she’s facing challenges that many new farmers and ranchers face: how to develop the skills and how to find a land base to work from. She’s taken these challenges head on, starting first with getting an education through school and internships, and then by diving head first into building her own beef business.

The lessons Meg shares in her articles are helpful for folks starting their own operation from scratch, and for experienced farmers and ranchers who are considering trying custom grazing or considering leasing land. To help this information get out, I’ve put together a handout with links to her articles. You can download it, copy it in either color or black and white, and then share it at your conferences, workshops and other events.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.


  1. Kathy,

    Thoroughly enjoy your articles. Keep up the good woek.

    Question. What’s the skinner on ACV ?
