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 Angus. We are developing a locally adapted composite breed.
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.
