Get to Know
The white cows are Ancient White Parks, a rare British breed that existed as semi-feral cattle since before the time of Christ. A starter herd was purchased from Seed Savers' Exchange in Decorah, Iowa. The herd has some other heritage breeds including Corrientes, Galloways, Murray Grays, Scottish Highlands and this year two Old World Angus bulls.
Bulls are maintained for natural service breeding. The cows calve once a year; the gestation period is a little more than nine months. Breeding starts in August for calves starting in May.
