|About us: A Sustainable Farm:|
Longlesson Angus could certainly qualify as a family operation, as Bob and Melanie, along with son-in-law Christophe and daughter Shannon do all the haying and pasture maintenance as well as attending to the breeding, herd health, and calving. We farm 450 acres, which is more than enough to supply quality pastures and hay for our herd. Our calves gain weight easily, and cattle maintain excellent body condition through the winter without any supplemental grain. We believe in humanely raising our cows on good pasture with ready access to clean water. The cattle groups are rotated between fields, moving to fresh pasture each day. With long rest periods between grazing, the fields naturally rejuvenate. We've found that grass is good for cows, and cows are good for grass!
