If you read our Ordering Timeline post our cattle are ready for butchering in Sept of each year give or take. Once you’ve placed your order here’s what you can do while you wait.
After you receive your beef . . .
While you consume . . .
I hope these tips help our customers as well as other farmer’s customers whom many have found this post.
Enjoy your beef!!]]>
The grain is raised here on the farm from field corn seeds sold by LG Seeds.
The bull and cows are all on pasture, but through the winter will receive bales of hay as well. We occasionally buy them mineral tubs as a treat. Oh do they love those!
We can’t consider our cattle organic by any means, but I can say that our cattle are antibiotic, hormone, and preservative free.]]>
Thankfully here on the farm the cattle are checked on daily, the fences are maintained to keep them safe, the barns are cleaned on a regular basis, and they are down right spoiled. They are rotated through a variety of pastures to allow the pastures to regenerate, and give the cattle fresh pasture in which to graze. There is one particular pasture that they love and it’s the one right in front of the house. They will stand at the gate and “moo” until we open it and let them in. It’s such a hoot or should I say “moo.”
Cattle are community animals so they do better when they are surrounded with other cattle. The more the merrier when it comes to cattle.
2012 beef sales is closed at this time. If you are interested in 2013 freezer beef please send Sherry an email and she will put you on a waiting list.
Thanks for your interest and in supporting a farmer directly.
