Dexter cattle

Posted September 13th, 2012 in Blog by rjspence

In 2005, after considering several different breeds, we added eight Katahdin sheep to the farm, chosen because of the quality of their meat. The sheep obviously enjoy our green pastures and pleasing environment, as we have had many generations of lambs born on the farm since then!

In 2010 we became stewards to seven head of Dexter cattle. Like the sheep, the cows enjoy our green pastures and we welcome several calves each year. The native home of the Dexter is in southern Ireland, where they were bred by small land holders and roamed about in an almost wild state of nature. In recent years there has been a worldwide surge of interest in Dexter cattle because they thrive in hot as well as cold climates and do well outdoors year round.

Our animals live a natural life–eating naturally and behaving naturally. They graze on green pasture, and are fed no hormones or antibiotics. Meat from grass-fed animals is lower in fat and lowers LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). Additionally, there is 2-4 times the amount of Omega-3s in meat from grass-fed animals compared to those fed primarily grain. Omegas-3’s play a vital role in every system in the human body. Learn more about the benefits of grass-fed meat at eatwild.com.

When you purchase meat from us you are buying beef and lamb that is locally raised and processed humanely. Your purchase makes a difference!
