Deer Run Farm

Cattle

A happy cow will always provide a better tasting burger!

Our cattle are all Registered Red Angus. They're born and raised on the farm only to leave for slaughter and be returned two weeks later to our on farm store. There are currently 37 mother cows on the farm with roughly the same number of calves. We have two herd bulls, Andy and Angus. Majority of our heifers and steers are fed out for beef, but we do send a few bulls (1-3 a year) to the Penn State Bull Test in March and a few (1-3 a year) heifers we breed and sell at the Virginia Beef Expo in April. 

Red Angus Cow at Deer Run Farm

Our cows are foraged raised and grain finished with all feed produced directly on our farm. (Interested in understanding the differences in feeding methods? Check out this short and sweet article called, "Beyond Beef Basics: Grass Fed, Grain Finished & More".) We don't use any hormones or unnecessary antibiotics. Occasionally we treat our cows to apple flavored horse treats just to remind them that we appreciate them!

Visitors are welcome to come see our operation and hang out with our cows!
