Our cattle forage for grass and forbs year round. In winter when forage is limited we feed supplemental hay from our own haylands. Chemical free! We use stress free management and low pressure handling systems. In fact, our cattle follow us to new pastures instead of being herded! We limit the number of cattle on our land to ensure sustainability.
No confined feedlots, no grain, and no hormones. Galloway cattle are well suited to the climate extremes of Central Alberta and are very hardy thus require little medicinal intervention. We will treat sick animals if required but that beef will be sold separate.
Galloways have naturally marbled meat that is about 25% leaner than grain fed feedlot beef. Grass-fed beef has a higher Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acid ratio so is also healthier for your cardio vascular well being. We sell our grass fed beef as mixed boxes (approx. 24 lb) or you can order by the whole, 1/2 or 1/4 of a beef. All our beef is Government Inspected.
Besides our Grass-fed beef we also operate a Tree Nursery with over 80 types of trees and many native shrubs for landscaping, shelterbelts, and reclamation. Visit us on the web at West Haven Nursery.
