Gunnink is a long time “whole farm
management” consultant from Minnesota. Along with his wife, Janet, and their two sons
Zach and Andy, they raise organic grass
finished beef on 170 acres of land near Gaylord, Minnesota.
After several years of searching and researching the often asked
question, “What does it take to raise choice grass finished beef?”, he started the ‘Gunnink
Forage Institute’. His goal is to teach
others how to raise high quality grass for both grass finished beef and
dairy. Previously, he founded the
Minnesota Intensive Graziers’ Groups and
for many years coordinated the Minnesota Grazing Conference.
