** Here at the ranch nothing goes to waste. We utilize everything to the fullest extent.
** In the summer we graze native grass pastures that are not suitable
for farming, yet our cows raise their calves and thrive.
** Our winter routine puts our cows on farm ground where they clean up
forages like corn stalks, wheat stubble and hay fields.
This practice benefits both cow and land.
** All of our hay, as well as some of our corn, is grown here on our farm.
Any other feeds we feed are also locally grown.
** We utilize other feeds such as sugar beet pulp and distiller's grains.
(Two local bi-products leftover after they produce sugar and ethanol.)
** Buying local and utilizing local resources ensures we are keeping it green.
** The cow is an incredible green machine.
Cows convert otherwise useless forages and feeds into an amazing source of protein.
