Each May and June, we breed our dairy cattle, usually with a Dexter or Jersey Bull. When our Jersey cows give birth to bull calves, we keep them and raise them for beef. We practice rotational grazing, giving the cows a fresh strip of grass twice daily during the growing season.
This not only means better nutrition and health for the cattle, but keeps our pastures in good shape, preventing manure build-up and reducing erosion. The cattle are also given free-choice loose minerals.
