All Natural Beef Raised In Greene County

Some former tobacco farmland is now grazing pasture for some natural beef cows. The cows are raised naturally, meaning no steroids and no antibiotics, but, of course that means production is smaller than conventional feedlots. So several Greene County farmers are coming together to raise the cows under the same strict standards. Robert Dawson is one of those farmers raising cattle and Dawson says he wants to provide a product the consumer knows is safe. The farmers say if one of their natural cows becomes sick, it will be administered antibiotics, but then it is not sold as "natural."
