Herd and Flock reduction sale- Due to the drought, we're reducing our flock and herd size. Nothing wrong with the animals, we are just not going to have enough feed. They are all in good shape, up to date on vaccinations, etc.

Cattle- Angus/Hereford/Dexter crosses and pure bred but not registered Belted Galloways. We have pretty much all ages from weaned calves, yearlings on up to bred or cow/calf pairs.

Sheep-Shropshire crosses. Ram is from Fred Groverman, ewes are a mix of suffolk, colombia, dorset, rambouillet, wensleydale. Everything from weaned lambs up to ewes.

We'll be slowly shipping off animals starting in March and continuing until August. Whatever isn't sold to people will end up going to auction.

We are just north of Ukiah, with easy access right off 101. Call, message, or email, 707.272.5477 if you are interested.
