From the Ranch Gate to the Dinner Plate

Most Americans are several generations removed from a background in production agriculture, and have little if any, first-hand knowledge about where their food comes from and how that food is produced.  America’s sheep farmers and ranchers produce high quality food and fiber in an ever-changing and increasingly complex environment.  Stewards of the land, these farmers and ranchers provide wildlife habitat, open space and a myriad of other benefits that enhance our communities and our nation. American Lamb is raised from coast-to-coast, and border-to-border.  From the Ranch Gate to Dinner Plate was filmed in Colorado, and takes a look a seasonal look production practices in that state.  December 2012
