Since 2001 the farm has grown and gained a few more cows but maintained the original cow/calf operation. We started implementing rotational grazing with the cows in 2006. There were a few years of trial and error before we got the system down, but now we are able to work the grazing system seamlessly. Rotational grazing improves the health of the pasture grasses and soil while also allowing more cows to be raised per acre. We were able to maximize the amount of forage grown on healthier soils with the implementation of the grazing system. Our 150 head of cattle are happy, and the pastures thrive with little assistance.
Our calves consume a high protein diet. In the spring season our cattle graze on forage oats. Throughout the summer months we switch the pastures to sorghum sudangrass, which provides an even higher protein content for finishing. We have been raising the best cattle in the area for years and feel consumers need to experience our beef as well. We have started direct marketing to consumers in the area and are told our beef is of the best quality. Our meat has a better flavor, is full of omega-3 fatty acids, and high quality marbling.
