Jeff

A few months ago we decided that the empty paddocks needed to be filled. So, in stepped Jeff an Ayrshire steer. He has been here for a good couple of months now and growing, although he is not a meaty should I say as a beef breed he will provide us with some delicious grass fed, garden scrap fed beef.




The clock is now ticking, we are already into September, the deer hunting season is only a few days away and planning the date for Jeff's final day will come forth over the next few weeks. It will be the first time we have processed such a large animal (other than deer) on the homestead. There will be mixed emotions leading up to and on that day. It has to be remembered though that when that time comes he has had a great life and we can rest assured that the meat we eat will be the best possible.
