Greetings from the crew at Southworth Bros Ranch!
In the photo above, there's a calf nestled at the base of a Giant Wild Rye grass plant in one of our calving lots. That is good habitat for a calf less than a day old. It provides protection and the ground is clean. Combined with the milk from his mother, this calf is off to a great start in life.
When our snow melts and our hay meadows begin to naturally flood as they do each year, swans, geese, ducks, and cranes by the hundreds and sometimes thousands pause on their way north to Canada and Alaska.
That's a healthy habitat with clean water and forage underneath to give these migratory birds a chance to catch their breath and rest their wings as they make their way north.
That's healthy habitat for people; a place where your voice matters, you are treated with respect and you are involved in something bigger than yourself that is meaningful to others: the production of healthy beef.
- Jack, Teresa and the crew at Southworth Bros
