Growing Meat

Rosemary, our Dexter cow, is due any day.  We are hoping for a bull calf.  We plan on butchering Dillweed, our Dexter steer, and Velvet, our Shetland yearling ram, later this month.  If Greta, our Highland cow, proves to be  infertile we plan on butchering her in November.  We plan on butchering our rooster chicks and our turkeys in November or December.  The piggies we will likely butcher in February.  The Araucana chicks will be butchered in 6 months if they prove to be difficult (my experience with Araucana roosters has not been good).  We sell our lamb, pork and beef so let us know if you are interested.

    We might be intrested in a half beef, how much?

      It is $4 per pound hanging weight which includes the cut and wrap. We are guessing his hanging weight will be about 400 pounds. We expect to lose about 30-40% of the hanging weight in the final cut and wrapped meat weights. Let me know if you are interested and if you prefer the Dexter or Highland beef.
