A side of beef will yield about 185lbs of meat . A whole side roughly 360lbs of meat.
What our cattle eat:
Our beef is 100% grass fed and grass finished
The herd is sustained purely on grass and hay diet. We move them to fresh grass 2-7 times per week depending on the pasture size, quality and time of year. During the winter the cattle eat both first and second cut dry hay. Our cows are crucial in the pasture rotation system as they are great fertilizers and help interrupt the parasite cycle for the sheep.
HORMONES AND ANTIBIOTICS:
We do not use any hormones in the production of our beef. We also do not use any antibiotics in the cattle who are raised as slaughter animals. We will use antibiotics in our breeding stock (mothers) in case of an emergency.
The breed of our cattle:
We have done our research and have chosen a breed of cattle called Red Poll. Although once a well known breed, they are now an uncommon breed in the United States. They are supposedly known for their tender beef on grass, gentle temperament, and amazing maternal skills, all qualities which any beef producer would admire, and which many beef breeds have. Now that we have some years of experience with this breed, we can attest that all of their benefits are true, but their best quality, in our eyes, is their calmness. Since starting our farm we have built up our infrastructure for ease and efficiency (permanent fencing and cattle yards etc.) but before all that, we were capturing, working and loading these animals onto trailers with a single poly wire strand (like a flimsy rope guide). Looking back, its unbelievable what these cows did for us. Now that is not something every breed of beef cattle can attest to. Or maybe we should say, not every naive beginning farmer has attempted...
