Habitat and food

From birth, and In their early life, calves live of off their mothers milk and then gradually take up eating grass themselves. At around 9-12 months, whether depending, the calves are slowly weaned from their mothers
They then go on to a diet, which consists of a mix of barley, corn, hay and molasses, which are carefully measured. Firstly the mix is a high protein diet which helps them grow a good frame and then on to a higher carbohydrate diet to fill out.

What other people are saying about the importance and benefits of low antibiotic use.
Soil, and pasture, management

We are very aware of the importance of looking after our soil and the environment. It is as important as the air we breath. We believe it is important to find ways of avoiding the cause of problems rather than looking for quick fixes or unsustainable ways of getting results. One thing we do is not use fertilizer and instead rely on the nitrogen fixing abilities of cloves.
