We are looking into a recent USDA program to loan money for a cattle working facility with very low interest rate over 4 years. Then can get a pro out here to build something to keep me from being killed and doing the Vet work on the cows and bull. I will look into a gate to divert and put the sheep shoot as well. Alright! Like cows, just know they can kill you without even meaning to...
Oldesouthfarm@gmail.com, will go to my phone.
He is a Beef master bull from Charlie Dunkin's Herd. This bull's daddy is a high dollar bull. Brutus is not perfect, but we are happy with him and he throws the polled gene, so I do not have to dehorn. HIs calves have been nice and small as well. Beyonce, our half Angus heifer should be able to calve easy by this big boy. Beyonce is beautiful and reminded me of Beyonce the singer... Hate dehorning cattle, a barbaric and bloody mess. Did it as a kid riding with an old Veterinarin who dehorned Dairy Cattle. We would be covered with blood by the end of the day. Breed polled cattle is my sugession!
Have more new lambs and will be taking pictures shortly to let everyone know what was born and what is for sale... All our Cheviots are sired by Victor, a Smokey Valley, tiny ram. We will be retaining a ram lamb and a few ewe lambs by him, but he was bred to 9 ewes, so should have several to sell. This is a tiny line of Cheviots, sought after for the type, stocky, fine boned with a nice fleece. Stay tuned for more info.
We sent 3 ram lambs to be processed, 2 shetland and 1 icelandic. The Shetlands are as tasty as the Icelandic, just not as large. Shetland can take the heat better then the Icelandics, may be another option for folks who want mild flavored lamb and know they will live to be processed.
