Katie And Jenna
Our oldest daughter Katie is locked into zero-waste living. We're really proud of her. Check out her Facebook site.
At 17 years old, Jenna has published a book. It is an account of a mission trip she took to Haiti. Her book is available on Amazon, or at Fincher's in Kincardine. Yup, we're really proud of her too.
Wondering How To Prepare Our Grassfed Sausage? Bake at 350...
That's right, for best results bake at 350 until the sausages are golden brown. They are lean, so include some olive oil. That being said, Erin G. had great results with her air fryer...Rob G. likes to BBQ them and they were perfect!
Our Very, Very Early Calf
Although the first calves aren't expected until February 7, we had a little surprise on January 11th. How this happened, I don't know...well that's not true, I know how it happened, but the bull and momma cow were not together until May 5th. Just like everyone else!
Here's what I did to help.
First, I used a tube and got colostrum into the calf right away. This milk has antibodies in it and is really important!
Second, with momma cow distracted I helped the calf find the udder and nurse. Neither of us got kicked!
Her name? Hawk. We like to choose earthy names, and the purebred registration letter this year is H.

The Episode I'm Working On Now. Although it's not finished yet, I've been working on a new episode featuring Dr. Stephen Larmer. He's an expert in a field of genetics called "genomics", and is looking at ways to use DNA tests to select for cattle that grow better on less feed. All purebred bulls like ours are DNA tested in order to be registered, and Dr. Larmer is making use of that data.
Thanks for supporting our farm!
