Since we won't be aquiring our livestock until the spring of 2005, we don't have much to show on this page.  Keep checking in!

Here's what we can tell you at this point.
 
We will be starting our herd with Approx. 6 RED BEEFALO Heifers.  They will be a Red Angus/Simmental mixed breed.  They will take a little longer to finish due to the large frame size of the Semitol breed characteristics.
But from the research we've done to this point, that appears to be the best mix of breeds for slaughter cattle.

We will be doing natural breeding (not artifical insemination), to increase herd size.  Financially, natural servicing with a single BEEFALO bull per 25 - 30 cow's, make more sense.  It will eventually be a "closed herd" and all breeding will be done "In-house" so to speak.  NO MAD COW HERE!
