- Our beef, pork and chickens are raised on pasture-- with NO GMO feed or seed.
- Our animals are raised in herds, on our land, from birth to death.
- Our beef is not vaccinated; our cattle live in a "closed herd." Our Wagyu bull services his 3-Bell gals and no one else's.
I find people's lack of understanding about what GMO frankenfood is, how it is created, and how it performs in the environment-- including the gut and body of the organism who consumes--to be stunning. At the feed store one day I asked for organic feed for the pigs or chickens. The owner-- OWNER-- of the store looked at me with that "another damned YUPPY" look and sneered: "It's ALL organic; it was grown in the ground!"
GMOs can be produced to withstand massive assaults of Round Up. When the "Round Up Resistant" plant is sprayed, it is not killed; but it does absorb the toxin. That toxin concentrates in growth nodules and seeds. The critter who eats it eats poison in concentrated doses.
There are a number of objectives FrankenScientists have cited to insert genes from one organism into another:
GMO crops can be produced to contain their own pesticides. To accomplish this, genes from bacteria are inserted into the DNA of another species, say corn. These are lethal on insects be they pests or beneficial pollinators such as Monarch butterflies and honey bees, and contrary to Monsanto's claims that they are benign when eaten, they kill bacterial in the gut of humans and other animals.
We do not use pesticides or herbicides on our land. Our beef is spared this onslaught of chemicals.
GMO crops contain proteins no body has ever seen or consumed before. The body reacts by creating another protein to cope with the never-before-seen protein. Our bodies are in a state of reaction without benefit of a natural evolutionary process to counter and cope with the new proteins, as well as try to counter the effects of ingesting gross amounts of toxins.
Our beef does not consume GMO grass or alfalfa. We do not finish with grain. He does not eat it; you do not eat it.
Contrary to Monsanto's claims, Round Up is not biodegradable. (A law suit a few years back required they retract that statement.)
Round Up works by disabling a plant's ability to absorb essential minerals and nutrients. It starves a plant to death. Now, Round Up's active ingredients can survive in the soil for years, therefore all plants grown in that plot are unable to absorb vital minerals-- minerals you need in chelated form from a plant. So the plant is weakened thereby making it susceptible to disease... and you cannot get the mineral either ... making you susceptible to disease.
Our land is never treated with Round Up or any other herbicide. Our pastures were deliberately planted in a polyculture of grasses because we know that different plants absorb and chelate different minerals; therefore our cows get a variety of grasses and legumes.
It has also been found that manure produced by animals fed Round Up Ready crops sterilizes the soil. The toxins pass right on through the animal and land... splat... in your ground... disabling your plants from being able to absorb vital nutrients.
My most recent trip to a feed store resulted in learning another ignorant GMO fallacy: "I can't tell any difference between the taste in the meat from an animal raised on organic feed from that raised on 'conventionally grown' grown feed, so I'm not gonna pay dang-near twice as much to feed it."
Well, he may not be able to tell the difference, but his body sure can.
We have beef for sale now.
We also have pasture raised chicken -- They're grazing now and eating certified organic grain. $5.50 per pound. Reserve yours now. Numbers are very limited.
And we have pork-- raised on 2.5 acres of quality grass/ alfalfa pasture and fed NO GMO garden produce (heritage seeds, raised on our GMO-free/ pesticide- herbicide free gardens and supplemented with certified organic grain... $5.50/ hanging weight.
... and good eating!
