The cattle raced to the feed bunker as I pulled up in my truck. They knew what to expect; lettuce leaves, pineapple cores, lemons, tomatoes, turnips and more. I had just returned from Grappone Center in Concord NH with buckets of kitchen scraps that were waste from preparing one of the delicious Conference Center meals. As meals are prepared the Grappone staff puts kitchen scraps in covered 5 gallon buckets. We pickup the scraps on a regular basis and feed most of the refrigerated scraps to our cattle. Some items, like bread and pasta, go to the pigs.
