If you are looking for a breed that is good natured, adaptable, harsh weather resistant, and matures extremely early, then look no further than the angus. There are so many desirable traits in the angus, but the calving ease and good calf rearing instincts make this breed a stand out. The female angus is well-known for superb mothering traits and milking ability.
The baldy is characterized by the white face similar to the Hereford, with the red body replaced by the black from the angus. Primarily known for their excellent mothering ability, they are also docile and good natured. Baldies easily adapt to most climates and are an excellent choice if longevity, good calf survival rate and fertility are important qualities.
Shhhh… Don’t tell anyone but she’s one of our favorites. Smokey is loved by all and we’re quite sure she knows it. She just one step from wearing a tiara and a sash that says “Queen”.

Meet Emmy. She is the resident farm dog and chief mischief maker. She is a true herding dog. She herds everything from cows, grandchildren. She even tries to herd the 15 year old poodle – which is not very appreciated.
We had only planned to have one donkey to protect the pasture from predators. Turns out, Betty wasn’t just a “good eater” – she was pregnant. It took a minute to register, but we didn’t have a baby cow with extremely long ears, we had a baby donkey! Just before our “surprise donkey”, we rescued Catherine to keep her from being put down. That’s how our one donkey became three.
