Island beef: Who’s doing what? What products are available? What does the future hold?


Learn about cattle breeds, terminology like natural and pasture raised, finishing methods, slaughtering – fabricating – processing island beef, the quality standards you need to know.


Glen Fukumoto, Livestock Specialist with the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, University of Hawaii, will lead the session and provide you with up to date information that will be useful to you in your quest for island beef products for your menus. Producers of island beef brands will also present their programs and you will be able to sample their products.


The goal of this workshop is to give you the tools to ask informed questions when you’re buying local beef and to give you current information on the island beef industry.
