Irish Dexters

1 comment

One of the more interesting investments we have made toward keeping heritage animals was to look at genetics of animals that would finish on grass not just because we wanted them for consumer demand for grass fed beef, but because they are a smaller animals on our delicate soils, actually have the genetics for finishing on grass without grain inputs which no matter how you slice it genetics of modern beef are about size, thick marbling in the meat, and that takes grain to get the mouth feel consumers want on their plate.

 

Calling an animal grass fed because all it has consumed is grass doesn't make it taste good if the genetics aren't there which is why many people try grass fed, think it taste like jerky and choose to go back to industry standard beef.

 

We began in 2005 with seven foundation females, four cows, and three heifers. Cows are female cattle that have bred and had calves, heifers are untested females.

 

We also invested in a gorgeous registered Dexter bull, Sheamus which has been a lasting investment to farm. The fella can breed a Holstein, although we are pretty sure he must have a footstool hidden somewhere out there in the pasture!

 

Like many small farms, we wanted a milk cow and we bought a 'retired 100% Jersey with three working teats, and essentially blind. Sweetest cow on the farm! She provided us and a few other local farms with the best, in my opinion, milk cow for a homestead. As Jersey x Dexter the resulting smaller animal makes handling and keeping on less than an acre a means to fresh, wholesome raw milk without the keeping costs of a full sized dairy cow, and the overwhelming milk to manage. Our crosses provide about 2 1/2 gallons a day newly freshened, and stay pretty steady at 2 for the course of 'in milk'. Plus you get a nice A2 A2 genetics, rich creamy milk with plenty of butter fat for cream, ice cream, butter, and amazing yogurt.

 

Minnie passed after fourteen years of cow life but we kept two of her off spring, Pearl and Flora both Jersey x Dexter. We breed them and have a Dexter x Dexter/Jersey which has produced again a small family farm or homestead animal that we keep a waiting list for their off spring.

 

Unlike some ranches and farms, we prefer to calve late in the season. We like momma cows on grass when calves are born, less likelihood of hard weather to cause issues and in general zero problems with birthing but coyotes!

 

Today May 9, 2017 we had our first new line of Dexter add to our herd of fourteen. A little heifer born to Mr. Ace, another registered Dexter bull we traded Sheamus for the season last year. It's a nice community we work in that we can share good quality bulls and keep growing some gorgeous animals. Number one will need a name, yep we name the keepers! But she is a healthy little thing and we are looking forward to the next few weeks of a good calving season.

    cracked up to be. I found out fast though I was truly misconceived. See in this quick article I'll tell you exactly why your email list making a huge mistake by not starting to build your email list right this second, and how you can actually start building your email list with hungry subscribers ready to buy, buy, buy, in the fastest possible way, so grab a pen and paper, lock the doors, and please take advice from a millionaire marketer like myself, because you can not afford to miss out on this information on how to build an email list! First things first, let's talk about how simple making money on the internet is. Here is a simple formula to help you better understand how generating income online works: traffic+offer=sales.... sales=money $$$.... Now, more traffic=more sales=more money. Now we both know, you can easily create a great offer that provides great value to your potential customer, after all we want to provide value, but the problem many marketers have and why so many fail is where to get traffic, and how to send traffic to their offer to in turn create sales. Now think about if you had "on demand" hot lead traffic, you could send anywhere, at anytime, or to any offer, to generate huge amounts of sales. Well that's exactly what an email list is! It's traffic on demand, and let me say that again, an email list is hot traffic on demand. This traffic already believes in you, they know who you are, and the trust you because they're on your email list. This is the whole reason they say "the money is in the list", and why you need to start building one starting right now! So How to build an email list You Ask? So now to the second part of our problem, we understand why an email list is so important right? Right! So now we need to know how to actually build this email list in the fastest possible way, while still providing value to these people on your list, so they trust what products you recommend to them. So I am not going to get into the specifics of every detail here, but to build an email list, you need to capture someones email and preferably name. You can do this in two ways. You can send someone to a page called a "squeeze page" now a squeeze page is a page where you offer something to someone for free, and in return they provide their email to you. This free thing could be a report, a article, a e-book, a video course, or any other digital info. You tell the person what you're offering for free, and you tell them to get this free item they must fill in the form to receive their free item, so they feel in their email info and name, they receive their free info, you capture their email, and the person is happy and has received something valuable from you for for free. This person now knows you provide value, and anything else you email them recommending they know it must be of value. Now your email list isn't your personal ATM. You need to treat your list with respect, like a new born child, and you must not abuse this list, so emailing every offer in the book will ruin the list, they'll get the idea your just another salesmen trying to take their money. This is not what were here to do, we want to provide value, and in turn generate money off of it. Simple enough info on how to build an email list right? How to build an email list that is hotter than the sun!
