Cattle on the Farm

 

 

We love the serenity of cattle grazing in our pastures. Every day, our small herd of Angus and Dexter cattle is moved to fresh grass. The frequent rotation of the herd through small paddocks optimizes animal impact, grass consumption, and pasture recovery. Rotation ensures the cattle have access to a diet of fresh grass. The cattle provide the fertilizer to feed the grasses and rebuild the microbe community for optimal soil vitality.

Some ask, “ Isn’t moving them every day too much work?” It only takes us about 15 minutes to move the herd. They line up like runners at a race, watching us set up the next paddock and patiently waiting to move onto a new patch of lush grass.
