My friend, Dr. Alan Coleman, was a speaker at the Growing Healthy Texas Conference in Fort Worth on August 20 & 21. Growing Healthy Texas supports positive health outcomes by emphasizing nutrition and physical activity and by collaborating via community coalitions. I picked Alan up at the Worthington (Conference) Hotel and we headed west to the 2S Ranch. Alan was interested in our grass fed-grass/ grass-finished ranching operation. We spent the afternoon checking tanks, fences, grasses, and most importantly the herd. We talked herd health, ranching processes, and the health benefits of grass-fed/ grass-finished beef. We finished the day at BJ's for absolutely the coldest beer and best pizza in Texas while we reminisced about growing up in Beaumont.
