Not my most favorite time of year... The wind is blowing hard and the temperatures have dropped into the single digits overnight. Most the trees have lost their leaves, the grass is brown, skies are gray and dreary, and the Purple Martins are long gone. The garden is empty and resting until Spring. The cows, calves, and equine are all being fed hay now and the days are short. Thankfully, we pull our bulls out of the girl's pastures at certain times of the year so we don't have to worry about calves being born in these cold and unpredictable Oklahoma winters, so that's a blessing. It's a time of rest, a time to re-energize and to plan.
Thankful that we are all healthy and warm. The animals are doing well and we have plenty of hay stored to feed all winter. The calves are growing up quickly. Most all the momma cows are bred and will be having new babies in the spring when the grass is green and hopefully lush. Last year's FB Murray Grey heifers have been sold to great people and will go to their new homes soon or when they are weaned.
Thanks to Kathleen Milgard of Goodman, MO for purchasing 7 head of FB Murray Grey cows and heifers. She's very excited to be starting her new herd in the near future!
And thanks to Johnnie and Lindsay Boyd of Seneca, MO for the purchase of 3 FB Murray Grey heifers. They will be going to a great new home when weaned next spring!
We still have 2 - 50% Murray Grey/Brangus heifers for sale...
...as well as a couple of exceptional FB Murray Grey bull calves, and a 50% Murray Grey/Brangus bull calf.
And as always we have steers/beef for sale. We are a small family-owned and operated ranch. The pasture raised Murray Grey beef we sell comes from our ranch and we personally take care of our land and our livestock. We direct market our products using pre-orders for beef due to the rapid selling out of meat and the limited availability. The positive response from our customers is exciting. With inventory building each year, we hope to reach as many returning buyers as we can, as well as encourage others to try the superior MG beef!
Please call, write, or email for availability and current pricing.
