Grass-Finishing Beef

  Swallow Hill Farm

We recently finished no-till planting 40 acres of our farm to enable expansion of our grassfinished beef operation. We planted 14 acres of Foxtail Millet for hay, 6 acres of a "High Diversity Summer Mix" and 20 acres of a "Basic Summer Mix". We are working with the Hanover-Caroline Soil and Water Conservation to improve our soil, improve our livestock production practices and to protect Virginia's waterways. If we receive adequate rain, we will have many tons of fresh forages to help put weight on our grassfinishing cattle. The fields will be rotationally grazed by our entire herd but beef finishing this October and next spring getting preferred access . . .
