STEM on the Farm

On Tuesday, April 10, 2012, seventy-three high-achieving science, math and engineering students from Clarksville-Montgomery County’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Academy came to visit the Baggett Family farm. The students were joined by twenty-two biology teachers from across the system, who are integrating STEM into their courses. Above is a video showing some of the day’s activities and Phil Baggett talking about the benefits of the visit.

Video: To Marinate or To Rub?

Our friends at the Texas Beef Council have produced a great series of informative YouTube videos – at this point 69 videos in all. This one deals with that “eternal question” whether to marinate your beef or to use a rub. We think you’ll find the information here of great value in helping you to get the most tender and flavorful results from your beef. But don’t forget, grass-fed beef already starts out ahead of the game in flavor and tenderness.

Video and Article – Grazing: Helping to Save the World’s Soil

“The world’s soil is in trouble. Ecologists say without dramatic changes to how we manage land, vast swathes of grassland are at risk of turning into hard-packed desert. To make sure that doesn’t happen, researchers are testing out innovative ways to keep moisture in the soil.” And grass-fed beef, grazing in their pastures, as they do at the Tennessee Grass Fed Farm, are helping to save our grasslands. Read this important NPR story about how new grazing methods are being developed to save our grasslands. You can read the story by clicking here. (The story will open in a new window.) Be sure to watch the video below of Alan Savory’s TED talk, featured in this article.
