Beef Cattle Photo Gallery
Monrovia Farm purchases Black Angus and Angus Cross feeder calves
weighing 500 to 750 pounds from local farms at the Fredericksburg Livestock
Exchange. The young animals (8 to 10 months old) are grazed on clover and
mixed grass pastures through the spring and summer months, receiving a
small daily allowance of ground feed to supplement their diet. After the
heat of the summer has passed, the cattle are moved into the 40 x 200 foot
barn with continual, free access to the adjoining 60 x 100 foot loafing barn
with fresh water and baled hay available at all times.
The beef cattle are fed Non-GMO corn and alfalfa hay sileage, high moisture corn,
and a custom homegrown ground feed mixture. These local and nutritional
components create a balanced daily ration which finishes the cattle at 1,200
to 1,500 pounds, creating a marbled beef with tender, enriched flavors for
a delicious, high quality product.
