Story County Conservation invites the public to the monthly O.W.L.S. (Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors) program at the Story County Conservation Center at McFarland Park (56461 180th St.) northeast of Ames. "Raising Free Range, All-Natural Meats" will be presented on Tuesday, Feb. 4, beginning at 11 a.m.
Bruce Carney and Amber Miller will discuss the Carney Family Farm’s active involvement in ensuring production of the highest quality of beef, pork and poultry. They will also compare the health benefits of grass-fed beef and free-range, pasture-raised animals.
O.W.L.S. programs are designed for "boomers" or older – but anyone can attend. An optional luncheon follows the program at 12 p.m. Lunch is catered for a $7 fee, and registration is required for lunch by 3:30 p.m., Friday, Jan. 31. The planned lunch menu for February is meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, mixed vegetables, dinner roll and cookie.
