Bio: Peter has extensive experience in forage agriculture. He was the forage extension specialist at Oregon State University from 1986 until 1992. He is currently the Forage Product Manager at Barenbrug USA. His experience led him to study human diet and health. What he’s learned doesn’t agree with low-fat-is-heart-healthy dietary advice we’ ve been given for more than 50 years. This understanding, combined with his forage background, has strengthened his interest in THE truly sustainable agriculture – the production of ruminant animal products! His knowledge, enthusiasm, and speaking style will provide an entertaining and informative presentation.
