5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction Jan. 2 2012
Format:Paperback
The ethos and process of Polyface's beef farming is excellent. The journey through this book really helps you understand the concepts of a healthy environment and the benefits this gives you in the production of a solid healthy stock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book June 30 2010
Format:Paperback
This is the best all around book about beef production I have read. You will need more specialized book about calving, cattle health issue, etc. But this will get you going in the right direction or steer you in the right direction.

Joel Salatin brings optimism and energy to this series of essays on how he raises beef (and other livestock ) on grass for direct market to urban consumers. He reveals his tricks in great detail, such as the egg-mobile, the pig-aerator, electric fencing, the warm winter hay shed, and how to promote the meat. A must for anyone looking for new ideas on raising livestock

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and green concept Dec 14 2007
By Samuel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recommend Salad Bar Beef to anyone in the country that wants to produce beef worth eating. Salatin is extremely open and honest about everything he does on his farm, and is very passionate about green farming.

This book does not contain simple homesteading information; it is a manual on how to maximize profits, production, and soil fertility, while decreasing disease and stress(both cattle stress and farmer stress). When I said it does not contain "simple homesteading information", I did not mean that this book is complicated. Salad Bar Beef is actually one of the easiest agricultural books to comprehend.

Although easy to comprehend, you can not by any means read this book with a conventional mind. Pretend you do not know anything, and carefully consider Salatin's points.

If you begin reading this book and get the feeling that Salatin is strong in the way he presents his points, that's because he is. Many do not like being convicted, but the truth is, if you're never convicted, you never learn. Salatin makes his views clearly seen in his books, and every one of them are good and practical. Personally, I do not like reading a book in which the author is weak in his presentation of views.

I have never read agricultural books as good as the ones that Salatin has written, and I recommend them to anyone interested in farming naturally. The books are high-priced, but worth double that. Before long I will raise poultry and cattle using Salatin's methods, using Salad Bar Beef as a manual. Too bad I can't give Salad Bar Beef six or seven stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book Sept. 8 2006
By Ryan D. Marquardt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book starts with the framework for grass finished cattle production, then looks at day to day operation, followed by some more detailed points and problem shooting, before closing with marketing. This is a great guide and an enjoyable read. I liked it better than Pastured Poultry, but both are great books for those interested in the future of the farm buisness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource! Aug. 7 2008
By M. K. Havemann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are like my family and want to step away from the agri-business model of farming then this book is a great resource. Some parts are a little complicated as far as his method for tracking yields, but once you get the hang of it, it is quite an effective tracking method. Keep in mind...he won't tell you what kind of grasses to grow. Which I think is great, because you need to grow what is native to your area, not his.

These books are not just a great resource for raising salad bar beef, but also for marketing this unique product. That alone makes these books well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Oct. 21 2009
By Janet L. Weddle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Joel Salatin has affected so many people who want to raise clean food. Almost every book or web site that wants to restore agriculture to its natural fertility cites Joel's ideas. Much of what he has tried is specific to the conditions on his Virginia farm, but he is so inspiring that you can follow his example to find out what works on your farm, to innovate, and to look to Nature for the answers to your problems.
