Blue Rooster Farm has found that healthy soils are the foundation for sustainable agricultural production of any kind. We are farming two small farms using beef cows and ewes as our primary soil building partners. We use no antibiotics, growth hormones, chemical wormers, pesticides, herbicides, or commercial fertilizers.
We seek to be good stewards of the Susquehanna River watershed in which we live and farm. Managing our grasslands for grass-nesting birds while protecting and improving the health of the streams, wetlands, shrubland, and forest habitats are as important to us as the health and productivity of our livestock.
For eight years we have been using line-bred Black Angus genetics from Sam Wylie's old-time purebred herd in Bedford County, PA. Our cattle are selected for their ability to thrive in a low-input environment. Sam's bulls have excelled at improving our cow herds' fertility, mothering ability, and efficiency at producing excellent quality beef with a minimum of fuss.
Our calves are slaughtered at between 18-24 months of age, and produce carcasses between 550 and 750 pounds, depending on the desired level of "finish." We sell most of our steer calves by the whole, half, or quarter and also try to keep an inventory of steaks, roasts, stew meat, beef sausage, minute steaks, short ribs, and extremely high quality ground beef on hand for retail sales.
Our ewe flock is line-bred to purebred North Country Cheviot rams. While not as prolific as many popular sheep breeds, we like their hardiness, excellent feet even under wet pasture conditions, mothering ability, and high quality lamb carcasses. Our lambs generally dress out between 40–55 pounds. Along with whole freezer lambs, we carry an inventory of delicious lamb sausage, chops, leg and shoulder roasts.
Our animals are processed at Prestige Meats, a family-owned, professionally-managed, custom processor in Huntingdon County and Benners Beef, a family-owned, USDA-inspected processor in Juniata County.
