In founding our herd, we searched the southeast for animals that had the genetics to grow well on our local forages without supplementation. Our current herd consists of Red Angus and Sim Angus cows that came from herds that were grown on grass and heifers we have raised ourselves. We take pride in our all-natural, grass-fed, pasture-raised system. By allowing the animals to live as nature intended, freely grazing on lush pastures with minimal handling by us, our cows are naturally healthier and stress free.
The herd sire of our current calves and growers is a registered Red Devon bull, a breed noted for its ability to grow and finish on grass. We are looking forward to these crosses over the next few years. Our new herd sire is a registered SimAngus bull and we look forward to his calves starting in September 2017 and for the next few years.
Our feeder calves are grown from birth to finish on our pastures. We practice humane weaning and our feeders spend almost all of their life in the primary herd. We do break them out as a group to feed on the best pasture available immediately prior to processing.
The advantages of grass fed beef are numerous. Grass-fed beef is not only leaner and more flavorful than grain-fed beef; it is also more nutritious. Naturally higher in Omega 3 fatty acids, CLA’s, and Vitamin E, grass- fed beef is a healthful choice in your diet.
