Full Expression Farm has a herd of Black Angus, Red Angus & Black Baldie cattle. The cattle and sheep together are called a flerd (flock of sheep + herd of cattle), and graze together until lambing season when they are separated until the lambs are a couple months old. The herd is holistically managed, moving daily to fresh pasture to prevent overgrazing and spread the fertilizer evenly. This "mob grazing" mimics the movement of herds in nature, where predators keep the herd tightly together. Keeping the animals close together ensures the pasture is evenly grazed and uniformly trampled. Such animal impact encourages plant growth and protects against drought by keeping the grasses tall and the ground covered. We are members of the American Herbataurus Society and use linear measurement to select the cows for our breeding stock for tenderness, butterfat production, and the ability to grow well on grass.
