We use a method called Mob Intensive Grazing (MIG) to raise our cattle. As the video demonstrates, the cattle are moved to a new temporary paddock every day. They get used to moving and do so with excitement because they know they going to a new, fresh pasture each time. Because cattle eat and then don't return to the same pasture for weeks, parasites are less of a problem. The cattle are Angus and Hereford crosses. We added two Red Poll bulls to the herd to produce cattle that are more efficient on pasture. The cattle eat forages from paddocks during the warm months; and are fed hay during the winter months. The cattle have access to shelter during the winter but always have access to the pastures. The cattle are never fed grain, antibiotics, or growth hormones. We supplement their forage with organic minerals and kelp. Our cows are bred in the late summer so that they will begin having calves in the late spring when the weather is warmer so the calving is easier than it is in the winter months.
