We started raising steers for the simple fact that we wanted to know what it was we were eating. We started with just our family, and have now grown to 5 families and would like to give others the same opportunity without having to worry about the where and how. Our steers stalls are cleaned once daily, as well as their water buckets and feed bins. We handle them daily as well in the first few months they are with us so to try and get them used to us and to make our lives, as well as theirs, a little less stressful. They are fed sweet feed and hay, we grow and bale on our own hay here on the farm, twice daily as well as given fresh clean water. They are not given any growth hormones or implants to make them grow. We do however give them some feed through antibiotics when they first arrive at the farm. They come to us never being handled and the stress of a new place, traveling and being haltered and lead for the first time can make them have slightly snotty noses. We also worm them regularly up until a few months before going to the butcher.  Usually the last time the are wormed is around March, give or take. They are raised as a market steer in a stall for the duration of their lives. We make sure to give them plenty of room to move, lay down and even 'play' with each other and also give them plenty of attention while cleaning and feeding every day. The farms we purchase our steers from have many years of raising well mannered wonderful steers that grow. We  also only have 2  farms we buy from.
