Conservation with Cattle
We strongly believe that conservation is the key to success in any operation. By developing a system that works for both our cattle and the environment, we are able to maximize returns from our livestock. Our intensive grazing system allows for the cow/calf operation to graze quality forages throughout the year. Conservation practices implemented on the farm include:
Conservation Awards received Include:

Our operation was recently featured in a Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program outreach video for Pennsylvania and a national USDA Conservation Reserve Program video celebrating 30 years of CRP. It was an honor to be chosen to demonstrate our commitment to conservation. The videos can be viewed below.
