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. We are helping them re-establish by bringing a small registered herd to Vermont, currently the only registered Red Poll herd in the state. They are known for their tender beef, gentle temperament, and amazing maternal skills, all qualities which have been a real asset to our beef program. Also, since they are naturally polled (born without horns) they are much safer for us to work around. We love our Red Polls! We plan to offer breeding stock in the coming years.
