Animal care is our top priority. We believe in creating a comfortable, natural environment for our cattle, using low-stress handling and herding methods. Gemstone cattle are born and raised on our farm and enjoy a natural, grain free, nutrient rich diet free from added hormones. In the winter, the cattle remain free to roam in large fields, but are also provided with wind shelter and straw bedding for protection during storms and extreme cold.
In the spring, summer and fall, our cattle graze on a variety of lush, nutrient dense grasses and other forage. We rotate them through our open pastures often, so they can eat the most nutritious parts of the plant, resulting in high-quality beef that our customers desire.
To maintain health and growth, cattle finished in the cold winter months are fed a mix of green hay and silage. Silage is chopped up grass, or other green fodder, that is preserved over the winter by airtight fermentation to prevent spoilage. Just like canning vegetables or fruits! Small quantities of sunflower seeds, rolled flax or malt sprouts may also be added for extra energy and nutrition.
