We try to offer as much respect as we can for our
livestock. We want to see them healthy, and happy. It is
our goal that our animals spend as much time out in the
fields as possible.
We do not believe in either the use of hormone implants
or of feeding hormones or antibiotics. Commercial
feedlots use these practices to increase growth rate, and
to hide or ward off illness. We do however vaccinate our
animals for common diseases and treat sick animals with
the appropriate medicines. We also deworm and use fly
control when it is needed. We want to be natural but we
need to be humane as well. We will not sell an animal if it
has been ill and treated with medication without the
customer's knowledge and consent, and only well after
the mandatory withdrawal time.
We are dedicated to principles which sustain and enrich
our environment. We believe in supporting local products
and family farms and businesses.
