We let our herd have free range and pastures are rotated to take advantage of new grass growth. This makes for what Weslie calls "Happy Cows"
Our calves stay with the cow until weaning at approx. 7 or 8 months of age. We use fence-line weaning to minimize stress in the calf. Which conversely keeps the meat savory and tender.
We raise Brangus beef. This breed is 5/8 Angus and 3/8 Brahman. This makes for a tasty, marbled beef which is a characteristic of Angus. The Brahman adds the hardiness needed for the southern climate.
The benefit of our beef is they are finished on pasture and not at a feedlot. Again stress is averted by staying home during the "finishing phase" Also, we never give growth hormones, antibiotics or steroids to our calves.
