Our herd reduction had been successful! We still have a red bull calf that will be ready to wean mid June. This calf has the potential to be a herd sire but could also be a steer.
I hope to have some breed heifers this fall so stay tuned…..

As the song goes ” I gotta pocket full of sunshine”. It has been a sloppy wet spring so far, it has been wearing me down. All the critters at Turkey Feather Farm are bathing in the sun today. There are so many outdoor chores to get done and I had a hard time deciding where to start. Hmmm, the garden…still too wet. Mow the lawn…still to wet. That leaves trimming goat hooves. Yippy! The does loved the pampering and pedicures. I remember when I was pregnant how wonderful it was to have my feet pampered. I believe goat momma’s love it too.
Even with the rainy weather our Dexter momma’s have been hard at work having beautiful calves this season. We have a very handsome bull calf from our herd queen (Brownie). We started our herd going on 4yrs ago with a pregnant Brownie and steer. Now we have a herd of 10 which is more than we need so we will be reducing the herd. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing any of these great cattle.
