Steers:

All Steers have been sold.

 

Angus beef is notoriously tender, flavorful, and highly marbled. These three steers were born and raised on campus in a low stress environment to ensure tender meat. They should produce high yielding, high grading carcasses. The meat should be very marketable for customers or great for your family freezer.

All piglets have been sold.

 

This is a very eye-catching litter that will make wonderful show animals, breeding stock, or animals to harvest upon finishing. Note the unique genetic combination that gives the meat quality of the Berkshire, the maternal ability and length of the Yorkshire, and the style and expressiveness of the club pig. 3 gilts and 3 barrows to choose from. Very uniform in size and quality.
