The Royal Steer



Ladies and Gentlmen, this is our new ( and our first ) Steer. We have named him Sir. Loin. His weighs about 350 - 400 lbs right now. We are not really big meat eaters but if we are going to eat any we would like to have control over what goes in it if you know what I mean.




This is our neighbor, and Olivia's uncle, Howard, that we bought the steer from. He raises cattle and we decided that he was the guy to buy from. Here we are unloading Sir. Loin. Man that is a cool 6 wheeler he has. We hope to put a few hundred pounds on him and then to the slaughter house. Should have plenty of steak around for a while. I'll keep you all posted on this new project for us.

I've got to get me one of those 'Gators', or a 4 wheeler or something... All I have is this 2 cylinder tractor, and a golf cart. but them thar six wheelers look perty cool, especially if it can haul steer....
