Grass Fed Beef
Our cattle are essential tools in building healthy and vibrant soils on our farm. We graze our cattle using Managed Intensive Rotational Grazing techniques. We move our cattle to fresh pasture on a daily basis. This accomplishes 3 things. First, our cows always have access to the highest quality forages, which provide optimal growth and development. Second, it allows for the even distribution of manures, which efficiently recycles the nutrients and feeds our dung beetles and earthworms. Lastly, by moving our cattle daily, the parasitic chain is broken; thus naturally reducing the number of parasitic worms and flies that would attack our cattle, and reducing the need for chemical wormers and fly sprays that are harmful to soil, insects, and microbes.
Iverstine Family Farms grazes native grasses as well as strategically planned, no-till planted forages. This provides us year-round gain on solely grass. Our calves are finished on grass in a little over two years. This ensures that our calves have reached the fullest potential of fat, finish, and tenderness.
