FACILITATOR - Steph Marie von Ancken (she/her) - HMI
01:11:34
Thanks Wendy! Good question! We will open it up for Q&A after this and begin with your question!
Thistlethwaite, Rebecca D
01:13:24
It’s all about premiums. No premium, not sustainable to the producer.
STAFF - Peter Williams
01:14:47
These are great comments and questions! Keep those coming as they occur to you. We’ll track them and try to work them into the conversation.
Bryan Hummel, EPA Region 4
01:14:59
Agreed Rebecca. if it is not profitable for the average producer, the practices are not sustainable.
VOLUNTEER - Nat Torsch
01:16:06
Do the farmers pay Audubon a certification fee for the program? To cover costs of inspection, paperwork etc?
Thistlethwaite, Rebecca D
01:17:25
thanks Marshall, great stuff
Bryan Hummel, EPA Region 4
01:17:51
Marshall, Can you discuss some of the soil health improvements that help improve the bird habitat? You just mentioned water quality, but are you studying runoff, drought, flooding, groundwater levels? I strongly feel that there will be ecosystem service payments for many of these co-Benefits, and your early adopting ranchers will be much more ready to tap into these markets than the conventional ranches.

01:18:15
Marshall— That was fantastic!!
Annie Beall
01:18:51
thanks Marshall, really exciting stuff.
Bryan Hummel, EPA Region 4
01:18:56
Thanks Marshall and Kathryn!
Marshall Johnson, Audubon Society - PANELIST
01:21:30
Audubon Conservation Ranching is offered to interested ranchers at no cost. Of course, there are real costs associated with delivering the program, including soil carbon testing, bird monitoring, 3rd party audits, and technical assistance. I feel that one of our benefits is the ability to leverage philantropphy to help drive a program like this.
Annie Beall
01:25:12
Kathryn, has your group established a rancher group to build this facility? What location are you thinking of?
Thistlethwaite, Rebecca D
01:27:52
Island Grown Farmers Cooperative is a great model of this, they just turned 20 years old. Mobile and modular slaughter, brick and mortar cut & wrap shop. Just building a brand new larger cut & wrap facility now.
Wendy Johnson
01:28:15
Kathryn, will the modular slaughter units and cut and wrap facility still add up to that $27 mil from your feasibility study? And how many rancher owners are there at your start?
CO-FACILITATOR - Bronagh Gallagher
01:29:30
chatbox is open for questions - please feel free to input any questions you might have for Kathryn and Marshall
Sam Schmidt
01:30:04
Kathryn, how will you attract/train the skilled labor necessary to have a high quality process from slaughter to cut/wrap
Thistlethwaite, Rebecca D
01:30:37
Marshall- has Audubon thought of creating it’s own unique brand, or just working with those existing smaller brands?

Marshall, any examples of working on Tribal lands?
Trudy Harrold
01:31:17
Is there a Canadian version of the Audubon program?
Marshall Johnson, Audubon Society - PANELIST
01:32:09
@Trudy: Not yet, but we are in discussions to help support the creation of one. Great question.
Trudy Harrold
01:32:36
Thank you- very interested.
Debbie Hughes -NMACD
01:33:07

beautiful Gillian
VOLUNTEER - Nat Torsch
01:59:25
To Katie: We have a similar virtual farmers market platform in the UK, called Neighbour Food, but the platform requires 20% of sales from every producer in order to run. This can be quite a large chunk of profit for small-scale farms. Do you have a similar fee? If not, how do you work the costs of figuring out logistics?
VOLUNTEER - Anna Campbell, She/Her
02:06:55
That is amazing!!
Wendy Johnson
02:08:02
Kathryn, how many head of cattle are the ranches with the modular units processing per year?
Kathryn Bedell (She /her) - PANELIST
02:08:56
they will be able to do 15 per day 5 days a week about 48 weeks a year.
