We have moved our meat processing to the other end of the farm so here are the new directions.

Yesterday we made two decisions that clear the way for us to start nailing down orders for this fall. We confirmed the first slaughter date with the State slaughter house for October 8. That means that two weeks later you should be able to get meat if you make the first cut.
We also decided to keep the price the same that it has been for the last 4 or 5 years. It will be $4 a pound on the hanging weight (without skin or organs). Most of those hanging weights per side are around 250 pounds. The processing fee (if you choose to have us do it) will be the same as last year- an additional $1 per pound.
If your last name is not on the following list and you want a side of beef or more then you should respond to this e mail. Please respond with a current phone number so we can call you when we assign the sides. If I do not respond to your e mail within a week then you should call the phone number at the bottom. The e mail response is the official confirmation.
Thank you all for your loyal business. We strive to serve you with a local, premium, cost effective product. You can learn more at http://www.wolverinefarm.com or our blog at http://www.wolverinefarm.blogspot.com.

Second photo is June 27/12. The number of swallow holes has risen to 247. I'm guessing their numbers will at least triple this summer.

This little white boy with colored points in that rare color somewhere between chocolate and light blue still had a wet umbilical. Mom got upset because when all the cows came in for their bale this little guy got mixed up and couldn't find mommy. She soon cut him out and calmed him.

Herd matriarch @2 had large white heifer. She has chocolate points and stockings just like her mom. She is already trying to tear around with the other calves even though she is still pretty wobbly. She was trying to get out of the heat- 65 degrees.
