Our Cattle: Cattle Care and Health

The mountain ranch, at an elevation of 2,250 feet, offers warm, dry days and cool nights in autumn, an ideal time for grass finished beef.

The calves are brought into the farm in early spring grazing on lush, productive pastures. Clean, fresh water is provided from a well and piped to drinkers in every pasture. They are vaccinated against cattle diseases insuring a boost to their natural immunity. Fly control is implemented to relieve pestering the cattle and prevent eye infections. Trace minerals and salts are provided free-choice.

While the cattle are maintained on the ranch, any animal with a medical issue is culled (removed) from the herd. We monitor the feed, water, forages, minerals and parasites, keeping the stock happy and content.

The harvest season starts in late autumn. The spring and autumn grasses have an abundance of "plant energy." We grass-finish the beeves (cattle) at this time which produces superior, bold-tasting beef.

Walnut Hollow Ranch subscribes to humane animal handling practices. Our state of the art handling facilities keep the cattle safe and calm.
