Walk The Agrarian Path With Us

Here is Samuel, our latest Jersey steer.
Aren't Jersey calves cute?!
Here's his mother, Bluebell, in a funny pose.
We have raised some of the Jersey steers for meat but sold this little guy to a happy neighbor. In case you are wondering, Jersey meat is good. If you are wanting to breed your cows and heifers with a Jersey bull (or have them inseminated) in hopes that you will have more heifers, you will be happy with the meat when you have bull calves. The meat is more like veal and is very tasty. We've noticed that it takes a little more time to get them to size (for butchering) and they don't have as much meat as the beef breeds, but it will work out fine for those of you that are wanting to increase the number of milkers that you have.

Deut. 28:4 "Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep."
