What Breed of Cattle do you Raise? We are raising a mixed batch of mixed breed beef cattle that we purchased from an individual who is no longer going to be raising beef cattle any longer. He had a mixed group of heifers, cows, and a few bull calfs. We have been raising them on mainly pasture and grass bales brought in. We are attempting to raise them naturally, on pasture, and primarily have been doing so using organic practices. However, we do not have certification for organics at this time. We are hoping to learn some of the following: 1.) What Breed of Cattle do you Raise? 2.) Does anyone raise their beef cattle on grass only? And/or what else? 3.) Can you tell us how they grow on the method you use to feed and raise them? 4.) What age is best to harvest them at? 5.) What is their weight gain like? How big should they be to be processed? 6.) What is your live weight to hanging weights, and then actual meat that you get back from the processor? 7.) What else do you offer them for feed/if anything/and when? 8.) What type of minerals do you offer? Free choice loose minerals, lick tubs, salt licks, selenium blocks, worming blocks, protein tubs? Anything else that is helpful that you have learned to share?
