Grass Fed and Finished Beef In The Winter.
Our beef are 100% grass fed beef year-round. Spring, summer and fall the cattle are moved every day onto fresh grass. Once we no longer have enough grass for them to graze or the grass that is available is covered with too much snow we move them to a large winter pasture
In the winter pasture the cattle are fed organic hay harvested from our own organic grass lands. The grass is cut, sun dried and then rolled into large round bales. The bales are put through a bale processor that chops the bales into shorter stems of grass, making it easier for the cattle to digest. This chopped grass is then placed into large bunk style feeders. We use bunk feeders in the winter for the hay in order to keep the hay, dry, clean and off the ground. The cattle are able to eat the hay in the feeders whenever they want. We also give the cattle organic alfalfa grass pellets and naturally sourced minerals daily. Alfalfa pellets are alfalfa grass that is harvested at its peak nutrition, dried, crumbled and then pressed into pellets in order to maintain its nutrition and also make it less dusty and easier to handle. This provides some concentrated energy and protein for the cattle.
In the spring we closely monitor the grass growth in order to let the cattle start grazing as soon as the grass has gown enough to be able to regrow after being grazed.
In their winter pasture the cattle are given lots room to move, shelter from the wind with large windbreaks and fresh water that is pumped from our dugouts using a frost free solar powered pump. The cattle are provided with lots of certified organic straw for them to bed down in. This keeps them dry, warm and off the ground when they sleep.
We are proud to be able to say that we raise certified organic, 100% grass fed beef year-round. Grass fed beef is healthier for the cattle, the environment and the consumer.
