Breezy Hill Farm Update Nov 11, 2019

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • Remember, this Saturday will be your last chance this year for getting fryers from Virginia.  Contact her at souscon4@gmail.com to reserve your chicken and also your thanksgiving turkey.
  • The ground beef list is nearing the point for committing an animal for processing.
  • We had pork hocks this past Sunday for dinner.  Wow, they are delicious.  Better than any steak.  Only problem, they are only two for a dirt hog.
  • We had our first snow.  Didn't even cover the sidewalk and I saw two trucks hauling bales of hay.  We have enough grass stockpiled to last well into the coming year.
  • The latest Stockman's Grassland magazine had an excellent article on Water the Nutrient.  It will be awhile before they post it on their website, but when they do, I will be certain to include it on a future Breezy Hill Update.

**********************************************

A cow's body is designed to eat and process grass, but the majority of beef and dairy in the U.S. comes from cows finished on grain. Unfortunately, this is the way of unethical, unhealthy and environmentally devastating concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) that dominate industrial agriculture.

Grass fed beefcoconut oil and cocoa butter are some of the healthiest sources of stearic acid. An analysis from the University of Illinois compared grass fed beef to the grain fed variety and found saturated stearic acid was 36% higher in grass fed beef than in grain fed beef.  BE SURE TO CLICK ON THE “GRASS FED BEEF” LINK AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS PARAGRAPH.
