😛 Happy Hump Day from B/R CC! 🐮

Do you want to know where your meat comes from?
What kind of life it lived (ethical, humane)?
What quality of diet it had?
Save money in the long run?

When buying freezer beef from a local farmer, you are supporting a local family and local economy by keeping your dollars local. Additionally, when buying from a reputable farmer, you know that your product came from livestock that was sourced, raised and slaughtered (by a processor) in an ethical and humane manner. Finally, by cutting out the middle man and reducing the amount of times the meat has to change hands to get to the store front, you could save on how much you spend on quality meat. While this situation does not account for specific clearance deals a store may have, this means that you can get a higher quality of meat for less. 🥩

We still have availability for freezer beef for 2023. Let us help you stock your freezer with locally raised beef!

Colder temps = more hay and more feed.
Cows require approximately 20% more feed intake in colder months because they have to have more energy to consume to convert into warmth.

“Increasing intake will increase the amount of fermentation in the rumen, and one of the biggest waste products of fermentation is heat. If you provide cows with more energy and get more forage into the rumen, more fermentation happens and more heat is produced. The process helps keep cows warm from the inside out.”

We talk so often about the fun part of farming that sometimes we forget to mention that there are hard parts and times involved. We never expected to become so attached to an animal that wasn’t supposed to be a pet much less one that we never expected to be a part of the farm. Bonnie the bottle calf went from being a chore to being such a joy to everyone here at B/R CC. Unfortunately, we let Bonnie out in the pasture to socialize with the new Mama Cows that we recently welcomed to the farm and in that very short time frame she had been left in the new pasture, wild dogs got to her in broad daylight a few weeks ago.
On to greener pastures, Bon-Bon. We’ll miss you here. 🧡

Worked a few calves this weekend! This is just a short example of what happens when new calves arrive at B/R CC. Each animal will be tagged for identification and record keeping purposes (in the summer we also add an additional fly control tag to the opposite ear), vaccinated - if not done so previously, wormed (we use a pour on solution) and in this case they will also banded if they are bull calves.

We are a day late, but we just wanted to give a big THANK YOU to the driving force behind B/R CC for . This new farming family dream wouldn’t have ever been possible without you. Some days are hard…. But Seeing our children flourish in an environment where they learn from the world around them makes it worth it all. Knowing that while our individual impact now may be small, we are part of the 2% of the population that help in feeding and sustaining the nation is an awesome feeling. We are here for the ride, no matter where it takes us. We can’t wait to see where we go. Thank you for what you do for the B/R CC farm AND family.

💚 - Kali, Aurora and Magnolia

Happy Sunday! We have some new members on the farm! Mac is the Big white dog, he is an Akbash and will be our livestock guardian dog. He is 9 months old and is learning his new sheep. He was born hanging out with sheep as a puppy and then went to his new job working with a different herd of sheep. He is now working with our herd and he is ready to take the flock under his wing but the sheep still aren’t too sure about him… but we are working on it. Next we have Jess! She is a 2 year old Border Collie. She and Mac came from the same previous home. She will be used to move sheep from pasture to pasture. Her and I attended the Alabama Stockdog Association work day yesterday because I too am learning how to work with her and she needed the work for a refresher on her skills. Hopefully soon we all three will be working as a team to take care of our livestock. 😊

Despite our name, we don’t just have cattle here at B/R CC! We’ve had a hectic few weeks full of unexpected surprises and we forgot to share that we welcomed the start of our sheep herd onto our farm! Neither of us have ever had sheep so we are very excited to see what raising these guys will be like. So far, we are loving their presence on the farm. 🤗 more information will be shared in the future on how the sheep fit into our goals for B/R CC and our family! Stay tuned. 🐑

Considering freezer beef?

We are sure that you’re thinking, “wow, an entire cow is too much for our needs!”

We get it.

That’s why here at Blue Ridge Cattle Co. we offer the cow in quarter, half and whole!

So… What does that mean?
It means that you, a family member, a friend or even a neighbor can split the cow in half or into quarters. This splits the meat (and price!) into half or a quarter of the total amount.
For example:
You and your friend, your relative and your next door neighbor want to split the cow into quarters. Each person is only responsible for a quarter of the total price and will get a quarter of the cow.

We want to make this possible for you to have quality, local farm raised beef for your family which is why we offer the option of breaking the cow down into quarter/half if interested or sold as a whole!

Message us for more information. 🙂🥩
