Aaron Alons considers himself more of a grass farmer than a beef producer.

“If you don’t have good grass, you’re not going to have good beef,” Alons said. “Don’t be worried about your beef; be worried about your grass.”

He noted there are types of grasses in the region that do not grow when the air temperature is above 86 degrees (30ºC). By planting annuals he ensures there is plenty of pasture through the warmer months.
