GRASS FED BEEF

2013 Freezer Beef is Sold Out. Sorry.

April Grazing

A sharp looking bull calf grown on momma's milk & forage.

Grazing

Our cows grazed from mid April to Mid Dec this year.
This is over wintered calves and a heifer.

Grazing

More '11 calves in the foreground, momma's in the background.

Calving

Renegade and her 1st calf Zadie

Maple and Zeek
Birthing

We try to manage our farm in sync with nature. By mid May the grass is lush, deer are giving birth and so are our cows.

December Grass

Good thing Belted Galloway have the hair of bison! Dec grass?, brain freeze if you ask me.

Steer

The '11 born steers are near prime buy the fall of '12.

Jona teaching her 1st calf Zena to find grass that is buried under snow. I had to teach Jona to find grass under snow, as this is an aquired skill, not all cows know how to do this. She in turn is teaching Zena.

We keep our cows and calves together year round, unless the calf is a bull, he must leave the herd when he is around 6 months old. Otherwise he could start woowing young heifers and we could be having calves from females that are too young.

By leaving the cows with the calves, it has been found that grazing knowledge (what to eat and how to find it is acquired) is learned. Our herd's grazing ability has been growing by leaps and bounds since we took the plunge into farming in sync with nature. Think about, who goes around and weans the fawns from the doe deer? If a cow can't handle having a calf with her all year she isn't an efficient forage converter. After several generations of culling out the cows that didn't fit in our system, our herd is efficient.

Winter Grass

Look at me! Snow mustache.
