Franklin Co. —
For Franklin County farmer Roger Sledd, it's a new way of earning a living.
"It takes about 10 or 12 (cows) a month and we have to have them here (on the farm) at least 60 to 90 days," says Sledd.
A cattle farmer by trade, he has somewhat flipped the script. Instead of using the majority of his cows for milk he's using them for meat. And his client, The Franklin County Public School District, is all about the health benefits.
"There's about that long of things and names that you probably can't pronounce and things and additives to it that you don't get out of these animals and this product. It's just better for you," says Chuck Hutto, the Director of Food Services for Franklin County Public Schools.
"You can really tell a difference. Especially the hamburger patties," says Sandra Durham, a Teacher at Callaway Elementary.
