Hello, my name is Alyson and I am originally from Oregon. I am currently a junior at Montana State University majoring in Sustainable Livestock Production. I am majoring in this field because I love working with animals and am passionate about bettering our food system. After I graduate my goal is to own a grass-fed/finished beef and lamb operation, selling the meat to local consumers. This blog will be the space where I share my thoughts and ideas on food systems, nutrition and the effects they have on society. The material posted will mainly stem from readings and assignments required for my Nutrition and Society class. However, posts may also stem from sources found outside of the class. I hope you enjoy my posts!
