We try to market our beef between the end of May and mid-August. The reason for this is that the ratio of omega–3 to omega-6 fatty acids in the animal are more favorable while the animals are consuming green grass. The proportion of omega-3 fatty acids declines the longer the animal is consuming dried grass or hay. It takes about 90 days of not consuming green forage to lose the favorable ratio.
There are times, however, that animals are available for marketing during the rest of the year. Heifers that are bred but do not become pregnant are candidates for fall or winter harvest.
Contact us at any time to find out the availability of harvestable animals.
