At 'Cross Creek Farms,
our breeding for grass finished beef began
in 1999, when told by a cardiologist,
"You can eat all the beef you want,
if it is
grass-fed."
We were very reluctant to believe this.
We thought about it and we researched it.
Before then, our program was like most,
feeding lots of corn and other grains, and
treating the cattle for lots of problems.
From the beginning, we were indoctrinated.
We had huge calves at birth, scours,
lamenitis, acidosis, retained placenta,
copper deficiency, and more....
You name it, we had it--made no connection!
In 2002, we purchased our first Aberdeens
and made the conversion, breeding to our
best regsitered Angus cows.  We have no
regrets!  Since we added Aberdeens and
Moderators, converting to grass, and
producing high quality forage
--the problems were virtually gone!
We now focus on feeding the soil.
Better soil begets better forage, begets
better cattle!
It's only logical that transfers to better beef!

"In the real world,
quality grade leads the market
as a basis for premiums."
In other words, choice or prime grade
means more cash in your pocket.
Angus cattle have long been proven to
lead the beef industry in quality, grade
and a great taste experience.
We believe that carcass is
THE most important priority and MARBLING
is key in the finished beef product.
Aberdeens, and Moderators,
have a place in the real world, providing the
added benefit of lowering production costs
as well as dependable carcass traits
such as, enhancing quality grade, tenderness,
healthfulness, and great taste.
In other words, more cash in your pocket!

At ‘Cross Creek Farms we produce
stacked generations of
quality Aberdeen and Angus genetics
for you to produce more pounds per acre.
Customer satisfaction is imperative.
We earnestly strive to improve the next
generation of every cow family...so, they will
work for you.  In our 30 years of operation, we
have endured the rise and fall of many trends
in the cattle business.  The currents have
made our niche clear.

We seek to illustrate that natural production
methods trump the feedlot on all levels.  The
cattle are humanely treated at all times.  
Superior soil and forage management are
proven essential for high choice and prime
beef, with taste and tenderness, high in CLA
for optimal nutritional benefits.  
All flesh is grass!

Each time our program touches someone in a
positive way, we promote the integrity of our
breed.  Ours is a labor of love.  Our wealth will
ultimately be measured by the contributions
we make, the friendships we enjoy, and the
enrichment and serenity we receive from
God's creation.
