From the Ranch Gate to the Dinner Plate
February 15, 2013

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. The From the Ranch Gate to Dinner Plate DVD was filmed in Colorado and takes a look at seasonal production practices in that state. 
 
Individual chapters of From the Ranch Gate to the Dinner Plate can be viewed by going to www.coloradosheep.org/american-lamb.html. The DVD is also available for purchase. 
 
The video is presented by the Colorado Lamb Council, the Colorado Wool Growers Association and the American Lamb Board.
