Free program, "Legal & Economic Considerations for Direct Beef Sales Business," to be offered this summer in locations.
Tiffany Dowell Lashmet discusses upcoming free sessions in her latest Texas Agriculture Law Blog.

Are you interested in selling beef directly to the consumer?  What type of insurance do you need? How do you set your prices?  Do you need any permits?  Will it increase your profits?  Not sure where to start?  Wonder what mistakes people have made getting their business off the ground? We’ve got the program for you!

Justin Benavidez, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension economist, and I will be hosting two in-person programs focused on the legal and economic issues related to direct beef sales. These day-long programs will cover a variety of issues with speakers including Extension Meat Specialist Jade Cooper, Benavidez, a panel of business owners engaged in direct beef sales, and myself.

See, Ground beef demand continues strong

Here’s the exciting part…these programs are free!  We will also feed you lunch and provide a copy of our direct beef sales handbook.

We’re offering two live sessions.
