Awards and Best Practices
Intensive, or mob grazing divides a field into small temporary grass paddocks from which the cows are moved daily. This means the grass is not overgrazed, it has time to “rest”, the soil is improved, and the grass recovers faster, giving us an effective 20% additional pasture without buying more land. Best of all, it increases our interaction with our cows.
We use fencing to keep cows out of nearby streams and ponds, thus preventing foreign nutrients and manure from getting into the water shed. In other words, we are keeping the water clean so others can enjoy it. Cows now drink well water from livestock waterers.
2017 Water & Soil Conservation award for implementing the best agriculture practices of sustainability and regeneration of the land. We shore up protected creeks and pastures to prevent soil erosion. No pesticides are used on the land and only occasional spot spraying of weeks — most are dug up by hand.
We follow a VA State Nutrient Management Plan in addition to yearly soil sampling to insure that the appropriate amount of fertilizer and lime are applied for optimal growth results for our diversity of forages, their roots, and the beneficial earth worms, soil microbes, and dung beetles.
Lund Angus Farm is certified BQA (reg #VA 13373, #VA13374). Vaccinations are given to prevent disease and in the proper location so as not to cause blemishes or bruising in the beef. Stress free and behavioral principles of safe and humane handling of the cattle have been implemented (Temple Grandin method). It is rare that we need to use antibiotics, if the cow is suffering, an antibiotic will be given in the appropriate area and documented.
Separate areas on the farm have been set aside for the exclusive use of wild life and pollinators (bees and butterflies). These areas have water, shrubs, grasses, trees and wild flowers to support the deer, fox, turkey, rabbits, hawks and owls. These habitats encourage an increase in the quail, bee and butterfly populations.
