The Beer family ranch blog is explaining the small role we play in the production of food including beef, bread and oils. We have a strong belief that keeping United States agriculture strong will keep our country and rural America strong.
We put tags in each new born calf that match their mothers. The mothers can smell which calf is theirs but we can’t. We use a tool called a tagger to place a small calf tag in their ear, much like an ear piercing for us.
I'm a farm/ranch wife and mother of 4. I've lived all my life on a farm caring for Angus cows. Currently we raise cattle and a variety of crops including wheat, corn, sunflowers, millet and peas. It is a great life and great way to raise children. We live and learn everyday about the world God has made for us. We try to find better ways of taking care of the land while raising food for people.
