The Steers are Gone

The hardest part of owning beef cattle came this past Thursday morning.  They are gone.  We had them picked up.  They were too large to haul in our two-horse trailer.

This PFO (Principle Farm Operator) knew this day would come, that did not make it any easier.  And yet, we will raise more again.  It is good, satisfying work, though not profitable in the purse, but rather in the heart.

The hardest part of owning beef cattle has come…

As fate would have it, we fed them and now they are feeding us.  We have a new outlook on the meat we consume now because of raising these steers.  It matters how our food is grown and processed.  Our cattle had good days everyday except for one.

…we fed them, now they are feeding us…

“Give us this day our daily bread,” has taken all full meaning now.  Beef does not come from the grocery store.  It has a face, it moves, runs, is curious, eats, sleeps, grows and dies so we can live.   This is a driving force for us here at Blue Rock Horses & Farm.  We strive to be good stewards of what we have been given and taken on.  If this matters to you, you may be interested in our beef.

This PFO is looking forward to the next round of beautiful steers to grow and live here for awhile on this place.
