Birth

We have lambs in the early spring so that our forage production matches our ewes nutrient requirement to raise healthy babies.

Grazing

We finish our lamb in the same grazing system as our cattle, using their different grazing behaviors and habits maximizes the productivity of the forage and redistribute nutrients to our soils.

Slaughter

We’ve based our slaughter system off of Dr. Temple Grandin’s help and research on the topic. Everything from the curve of our shoot to the texture of our concrete has been assessed to assure the process is as humane as possible.

We have been steadily increasing our lamb herd and developing our grazing program for these amazing ruminants. Here in the hot and humid climate of north Mississippi, we raise Katahdin and Dorper lambs, which are called “hair sheep” and fare better here than their wool producing counterparts.  We also finish Califoria Red lambs, which have a heavier carcass, on pasture. Like our cattle and hogs, our lambs are never confined in feedlots, and always have access to fresh pasture, hay, sunshine, and shade. We rotate them often- from daily to weekly, using permanent paddocks and movable electric netting.  A big thanks to Rodney Akers with Sand Spur farm in Pontotoc Ms and Newman Farms in Myrtle Missouri for providing us with top quality lambs and advice on our growing program.
