There maybe as many reasons to own miniaturecattle as there are miniature cattle
owners. It varies from as simple as, an acceptable size pet cow to keep the grass
under control, to the practical use of ones limited resources to produce wholesome
beef or milk for the family. Including the added benefit of “homegrown”, “organic”,
“back to mother nature” basics, that many of us are so far removed from today. Where
we know “the whole story”, behind what our animals are fed, how they have been treated,
and do not have to rely on the production driven supply chain. All while re-establishing
our connection with reality, nature, and our roots. Whether its for you, your children,
or your grandchildren, its important to understand that our food supply doesn’t just
come from the supermarket. The more we all come in contact with the reality of our
food supply, the less likely we will be misguided by a commercial production, profit
oriented food supply system. You will have a whole new understanding of “Earth Day”
when you have had many “earth days” to relate too.
Our goals have been driven simply by efficiency within a grass based pasture system,
limited use of antibiotics (if they’re sick they get treated), selection for mild
temperament, and use of the best available genetics to accomplish these goals.
