Our Steers

We raise Galloway-cross steers.  The Galloway breed of cows originated in Scotland where they adapted to life in very harsh conditions.  As a result, this breed is able to flourish on the roughest of pasture and will eat a much wider variety of plants than other breeds, which makes them Steersreadily adaptable to our mostly wooded, very weedy land.  Galloway beef has been ranked as superior in flavor, tenderness and juiciness as a result of the unique marbling pattern of their meat.  Our steers have been primarily grass-fed, but we have found that without grain supplementation, their meat is too lean.  So we also give them grain that is locally sourced.  They receive no growth stimulants, hormones or antibiotics, except as medically required.  (They were given a tetanus vaccination when they were calves .)
