Our speakers for Winter Green-Up 2018:
- Brian Maloney is a custom grazer, grass-fed beef and lamb producer, as well as a direct marketer. Brian has been exclusively grazing stock since the early 1990s in western Quebec, where he raises black and red Angus beef. Brian also raises Meadow Veal, nourished on mother’s milk, fresh grass, water and sunshine. Katahdin sheep, an ideal breed for meat, are also part of Brian’s grass-fed stock. The lambs are born in early spring and spend all summer frolicking on grass with their mothers. They are weaned and fed all winter with our highest quality hay and finished with a minimum of 60 days on grass.
- MacKenzie Waro is the Livestock Processing and Marketing Specialist with the CCE Harvest New York team. MacKenzie works with processors, producers and consumers, helping to identify markets and concepts for marketing of livestock products. She is an HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) Lead Instructor, FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) for Animal Feeds Lead Instructor, SQF (Safe Quality Foods) Certified, and works with the USDA for cattle grading and carcass grading. MacKenzie is a graduate of Cornell University with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science along with a Master’s degree in Environmental Studies from SUNY College of Environmental Science.
- Sandra Kay Miller is a grass-based farmer who has been actively raising livestock for over 30 years. She is the owner and operator of Painted Hand Farm, a diversified livestock farm raising pastured poultry, sheep, goats, pigs and calves which are all direct-marketed in the mid-Atlantic region.
