ABOUT OUR BEEF
Our American Aberdeen beef cows are grass fed with no growth hormone or steroids. They are vet checked and finished on grain. All our beef is locally processed by USDA meat processors.
Originally called Australian Low Lines, this breed of cow was developed at the Trangie Research Centre in New South Wales, Australia. Animal scientists there began with a herd of registered Champion Angus cattle, purchased in 1929, that were carefully selected for high quality and small size. The end result was a breed of small, black, polled cattle with pure Angus genetics.
Just as buyers were getting to know and understand this particular breed, the Australian Low Line Association changed the name of the breed to American Aberdeen. You can read more about the breed at americanaberdeen.com. The name change was done by the Association’s Board for marketing and other reasons. In Pennsylvania, there are only about 35 members of the association that raise this particular breed.
Our beef cows are generally much smaller than the pure Angus that most of us are used to. The cows average around 900 to 1,100 pounds and bulls averaged around 1,100 to 1,300 pounds. This breed of cow is particularly known for rib eye steaks. They are a perfect breed for a small farm - very docile and good natured.
